An attacker can send a message to all devices with the event registered via SmartThings, which will allow them to receive the broadcast and potentially access sensitive information. CVE-2018-8109 In the event method of RegisteredEventMediator.kt, an attacker can send a message to all devices with the event registered via SmartThings, which will allow them to receive the broadcast and potentially access sensitive information. Note that SmartThings does not have to be installed on the same device as the vulnerable software. An attacker can install SmartThings on a device, register any event type, and then connect that device to the Internet. This can be accomplished by using the mobile application or the web application. An attacker could then send malicious messages to other devices with the same event, which can be installed remotely. This could potentially expose the device to external attacks. An attacker could also send a message to a device with a different event, which could potentially access sensitive information.
RegisteredEvents.kec is a Java class that allows registered events to broadcast information to connected devices. Registered Events.kec does not require any authentication for the plugin. This can be accomplished by sending a message to all devices with the same event, which can access sensitive information.
RegisteredEventMediator.kt is a Java library that implements an event-based architecture for automating interactions between devices. The class has three methods: register, broadcast, and unregister. Each method may call any of the other two methods. When the 3rd method is called on a registered event, the 4th is triggered automatically.
SmartThings devices are vulnerable
SmartThings devices are vulnerable to this vulnerability because they fail to properly validate the Event data before processing it. The Event data can be manipulated by an attacker, which could result in a malicious message being sent out to other devices with the same event type. This could expose the device to external attacks and potentially reveal sensitive information.
