Mandiant, a threat intelligence firm owned by Google, subsequently discovered that the flaw had been exploited for almost a year in attacks against businesses and important infrastructure.

The Google Android March security bulletin addresses more than 50 security flaws. The most serious is a critical vulnerability in a System component that could allow remote code execution without the need for additional execution privileges. According to Google, no user interaction is required for exploitation.

Google also fixed eight high-severity issues in the Framework that could result in privilege escalation without user interaction.

Meanwhile Google Project Zero researchers have discovered 18 zero-day vulnerabilities in Samsung Exynos Modems. The four most serious vulnerabilities CVE-2023-24033, CVE-2023-26496, CVE-2023-26497 and CVE-2023-26498 allow internet-to-baseband remote code execution, according to the researchers’ blog. “Project Zero tests have demonstrated that all four of the flaws enable an attacker to compromise a phone via the baseband with no user interaction, and require only that the attacker know the victim’s phone number.

Google has released Chrome 111, a security update that addresses eight flaws, seven of which are memory safety bugs with a high severity rating. A high-severity flaw in Passwords is tracked as CVE-2023-1528, and an out-of-bounds memory access flaw in WebHID is tracked as CVE-2023-1529.

In the meantime, CVE-2023-1530 is a PDF used by the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre and CVE-2023-1531 is a high-severity use-after-free vulnerability in ANGLE.

Google has determined that none of the issues have been used in attacks, but given their significance it is prudent to update Chrome whenever possible.
