Android Proxy Auto Config (PAC) Crash
Posted Nov 8, 2016
Authored by Yakov Shafranovich | Site wwws.nightwatchcybersecurity.com

Android devices can be crashed forcing a halt and then a soft reboot by downloading a large proxy auto config (PAC) file when adjusting the Android networking settings. This can also be exploited by an MITM attacker that can intercept and replace the PAC file. However, the bug is mitigated by multiple factors and the likelihood of exploitation is low.
