CERT-In finds multiple vulnerabilities in Android

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In), part of the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, issued a warning on Friday about multiple vulnerabilities in Android. These vulnerabilities could enable an attacker to obtain sensitive information, gain elevated privileges, and create denial-of-service (DoS) conditions on the targeted system. The affected Android versions include 12, 12L, 13, and 14.

Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Android, which could be exploited by an attacker to obtain sensitive information, gain elevated privileges, and cause a denial of service condition on the targeted system,” stated the CERT-In advisory.

According to the cyber agency, these vulnerabilities are due to flaws in the Framework, System, Google Play system updates, Kernel, Arm components, MediaTek components, Imagination Technologies, and Qualcomm closed-source components.

CERT-In advised users to apply appropriate updates as they become available from the respective original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Last week, CERT-In also warned about a vulnerability in Checkpoint Network Security gateway products, which could allow hackers to compromise users’ data. According to the advisory, attackers could exploit this vulnerability to access information on “internet-connected gateways configured with IPSec VPN, remote access VPN, or mobile access software blades.
