Subject: Owning Samsung Android devices


I recently found some security vulnerabilities affecting Samsung
Android phones. The bugs lie in Samsung-specific customizations and
not in the Android code base.

While waiting for Samsung security patches, I published an overview of
the issues here:

Possible consequences are quite interesting, as the vulnerabilities
allow an *unprivileged* application to perform several nefarious
tasks, ranging from sending SMS messages to installing APK packages,
but also including some denial-of-services and info leaks.

I hope I will be able to disclose the technical details soon.
