# Exploit Title: Content Provider URI Injection on Canon PRINT 2.5.5
# Date: 24th July, 2019
# Exploit Author: 0x48piraj
# Vendor Homepage:
# Software Link:
Exploit :
# Version: Canon PRINT 2.5.5
# Tested on: Android 8.0.0
# CVE : CVE-2019-14339

The ContentProvider in the Canon PRINT 2.5.5 application for Android
does not properly restrict data access. This allows an attacker's
malicious application to obtain sensitive information including
factory passwords for administrator web-interface and WPA2-PSK key.
The mobile application contains unprotected exported content providers
('IJPrinterCapabilityProvider' in android/AndroidManifest.xml) that
discloses sensitive application’s data under certain conditions. To
securely export the content provider, one should restrict access to it
by setting up android:protectionLevel or android:grantUriPermissions
attributes in Android Manifest file.
