A malformed OMACP WAP push message can cause memory corruption on a Samsung S7 Edge device when processing the String Extension portion of the WbXml payload. This is due to an integer overflow in memory allocation for this string.

While OMACP WAP pushes require authentication, the entire WbXml payload of a push is parsed to extract the credentials, so this bug occurs pre-authentication.

To reproduce the issue:

1) install the attached Android application on a different phone than the one being tested for the issue
2) manually give the application SMS permissions in the settings screen
3) start the app and enter the phone number on the target device
4) press the "send wap push" button

The target phone will crash:

The WAP payload causing this problem is:


Code for the test app is also attached.

This was tested on Samsung build number NRD90M.G93FXXU1DQJ8, which is the most recent update on my device
