Open Handset Alliance Android Multiple Local Vulnerabilities

Open Handset Alliance Android (previously Google Android) is prone to multiple local vulnerabilities including a privilege-escalation issue, multiple integer-overflow issues, and a buffer-overflow issue.

Local attackers may be able to exploit these issues to gain elevated privileges on a vulnerable device or to execute arbitrary code within the context of the kernel. Failed attacks will likely cause denial-of-service conditions.

Android 1.0 as shipped with the T-Mobile G1 phone is vulnerable; other versions may also be affected.
