CVE-2015-5256: Apache Cordova vulnerable to improper application of
whitelist restrictions

Severity: Medium

Vendor:
The Apache Software Foundation

Versions Affected:
Cordova Android 3.7.2 and earlier

Description:

contain a vulnerability where whitelist restrictions are not properly
applied.
Improperly crafted URIs could be used to circumvent the whitelist, allowing
for the execution of non-whitelisted Javascript.
