Vulnerability in the Dropbox SDK for Android (CVE-2014-8889)


We have recently discovered a vulnerability in the Dropbox SDK for
Android. This vulnerability may enable theft of sensitive information
from apps that use the vulnerable Dropbox SDK both locally by malware
and also remotely by using drive-by exploitation techniques.

The vulnerability is identified as CVE-2014-8889.

We had privately reported the issue to the Dropbox team which soon
provided a fix with version 1.6.2 of the SDK.
