Hacking Mi Smartphones using Mi Browser – About the Vulnerability

The vulnerability was identified as CVE-2019-10875. This vulnerability in Mi Browser and Mint Browser was discovered by a security researcher named Arif Khan. This vulnerability is a browser address bar spoofing issue that generally originates because of a common logical flaw in the android application browser's interface which allows any website or the attacker to control the URLs which he/she wants to be displayed in the address bar of the Mi Smartphone which has Mi browser or Mint Browser installed.

Hacking Mi Smartphones – How Does it Work

According to the security researcher the affected browser application’s  didn’t properly handled the "q" query parameter in the URLs which are in the address bar of the application, and so they fail to display the starting portion of an https (Secure transfer protocol) URL before the ?q= substring in the address bar which can be added by anyone.

As we know that the address bar of any web browser is the most reliable thing which displays the security of any website as a very essential security indicator so the flaw can be used to easily trick and hack any Xiaomi user making them actually being made visited to a phishing website to trap them.

Phishing attacks, today are the most common and sophisticated increasing number of attack which is difficult to spot. This URL from the address bar of the browser spoofing vulnerability can be taken to a much higher level which can allow anyone to bypass the basic security indicators in the Mi Browser or the Mint Browsers address bar, which is the first and foremost thing any user checks to determine whether the visiting website is secure or not.

Mi Smartphones Vulnerable and getting Hacked – Key Questions

Question 1: Why only the international version of both the browser applications vulnerable to this threat while the domestic versions are completely secured.

It is very difficult to understand why only the international variants of these browser applications vulnerable to this threat while the domestic versions are highly secured and do not contain this vulnerability.

Question 2: If not then is Mi Company supporting data leakage of Indian Users as well as other users? Are these Chinese manufacturers intentionally making vulnerable products?

Question 3: Why was the total bug bounty of $198 only given to the cyber security researcher why found out this critical flaw which has affected more than millions of users worldwide?

Security Measures – Conclusion

To secure yourself and everyone else, the mi users must know how to overcome phishing attacks. The vulnerable users best suggested by me should uninstall Mint Browser if they have installed it and block/Stop using Mi Browser which comes preinstalled in Mi devices.
