Description: File Explorer (FX) for Android Suffers from a Path Traversal
and android.permission.storage permission leakage vulnerability.

The nextapp.fx.FileProvider Content Provider URI does not require any
Read/Write permissions yet allows unauthorized applications to make use of
the android.permission.STORAGE permission by providing them with access to
the local filesystem.
Impact: Malicious Android applications with no Permissions are capable of
leaking the contents of a victims local file system.

An estimated 500,000 - 1,000,000 installs are currently affected.
Fix:
Enforce android.permission.STORAGE Read/Write permission for the affected
content provider.
