(from the vendor's homepage)

The "O2 Business App" for Android exposes an activity to other apps called
"canvasm.myo2.SplashActivity". The purpose of this activity is to handle
deeplinks which can be delivered to the app either via links or by directly
calling the activity.

However, the app does not properly validate the format of deeplinks by just
using str.contains() to verify the allowed host:

private boolean isVanityLink(String str) {
       return str.contains("") || str.contains("")
       || str.contains("") ||

private boolean isDeepLink(String str) {
   return str.contains("")
   || str.contains("")
   || str.contains("")
   || str.contains("")
   || str.contains(BuildConfig.PIRANHA_BASE_E2E2_URL)
   || str.contains("")
   || str.contains("")
   || str.contains("");

This can be abused by an attacker (malicious app) to redirect a user to any page
and deliver any content to the user. An exemplary exploit could look like the

Intent i = new Intent();
i.setComponent(new ComponentName("", "canvasm.myo2.SplashActivity"));
Uri uri = Uri.parse("");

A malicious app on the same device is able to exploit this vulnerability to lead
the user to any webpage/content. The specific problem here is the assumed trust
boundary between the user having the o2 Business app installed and what the app
is actually doing/displaying to the user. So if the user sees the app being
loaded and automatically redirecting to another page, it can be assumed that the
loaded page is also trusted by the user.

Update the app to version 1.3.0
