Rooting with root cause: finding a variant of a Project Zero bug

In this blog, I’ll look at CVE-2022-46395, a variant of CVE-2022-36449 (Project Zero issue 2327), and use it to gain arbitrary kernel code execution and root privileges from the untrusted app domain on an Android phone that uses the Arm Mali GPU. I’ll also explain how root cause analysis of CVE-2022-36449 led to the discovery of CVE-2022-46395.

Pwning Pixel 6 with a leftover patch

In this post, I’ll look at a security-related change in version r40p0 of the Arm Mali driver that was AWOL in the January update of the Pixel bulletin, where other patches from r40p0 was applied, and how these two lines of changes can be exploited to gain arbitrary kernel code execution and root from a malicious app. This highlights how treacherous it can be when backporting security changes.
