Apache Cordova Android 3.6.4 BridgeSecret Weak Randomization

Apache Cordova Android 3.6.4 BridgeSecret Weak Randomization
Posted Nov 21, 2015
Authored by Roee Hay, David Kaplan

Apache Cordova Android versions 3.6.4 and below use a bridge that allows the Native Application to communicate with the HTML and Javascript that control the user interface. To protect this bridge on Android, the framework uses a BridgeSecret to protect it from third-party hijacking. However, the BridgeSecret is not sufficiently random and can be determined in certain scenarios.
