MIUI Wifi Connection Message Vulnerability



MIUI Wifi Connection Message Vulnerability

I. Summary
Wifi Connection Message is written to a NFC tag, which can be touched by a NFC mobile phone for connecting wireless AP 

automatically. A logic flaw has been found in MIUI that is a Android ROM. The flaw can be used to turn on wifi, with the 

help of "wifihandover"(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.endflow.apps.wifiho) or "NFC Tag 

Assistant"(http://app.mi.com/detail/43940).

II. Description
According to the NFC Wifi Connection Message Specification, construct a message as follow.
D2 17 45 61 70 70 6C 69 63 61 74 69 6F 6E 2F 76
