Improper Restriction of Operations within the Bounds of a Memory Buffer
Mdapt Driver of Huawei MediaPad M3 BTV-W09C128B353CUSTC128D001; Mate 9 Pro versions earlier than 188.8.131.526(C00); P10 Plus versions earlier than 184.108.40.2067(C00) has a buffer overflow vulnerability. The driver does not sufficiently validate the input, an attacker could trick the user to install a malicious application which would send crafted parameters to the driver. Successful exploit could cause a denial of service condition.
CWE-119 - Buffer Overflow
Buffer overflow attacks involve data transit and operations exceeding the restricted memory buffer, thereby corrupting or overwriting data in adjacent memory locations. Such overflow allows the attacker to run arbitrary code or manipulate the existing code to cause privilege escalation, data breach, denial of service, system crash and even complete system compromise. Given that languages such as C and C++ lack default safeguards against overwriting or accessing data in their memory, applications utilizing these languages are most susceptible to buffer overflows attacks.
