Subject: Low severity flaw in RIM BlackBerry PlayBook OS browser


The web browser which comes as part of the RIM BlackBerry PlayBook OS can be 
tricked into disclosing the contents of local files through the
planting of a malicious HTML file through the standard download mechanism.  
It should be noted that in order to exploit this issue, user interaction
is required as the user will need to confirm the download of the malicious
HTML file.

After discussions with the vendor, CVE-2012-5828 was assigned to this


As of 1st Novmeber 2012, the state of the vulnerability is believed to
be as follows.  RIM have begun shipping a patch which it is believed
successfully resolves the reported issue.


Nth Dimension would like to thank all the security folk at RIM, in
particular the BlackBerry Incident Response team for the way they worked
to resolve the issue.
