Samsung Internet Browser SOP Bypass



This module takes advantage of a Same-Origin Policy (SOP) bypass vulnerability in the Samsung Internet Browser, a popular mobile browser shipping with Samsung Android devices. By default, it initiates a redirect to a child tab, and rewrites the innerHTML to gather credentials via a fake pop-up.

Module Options

To display the available options, load the module within the Metasploit console and run the commands 'show options' or 'show advanced':

msf > use auxiliary/gather/samsung_browser_sop_bypass
msf auxiliary(samsung_browser_sop_bypass) > show actions
msf auxiliary(samsung_browser_sop_bypass) > set ACTION < action-name >
msf auxiliary(samsung_browser_sop_bypass) > show options
    ...show and set options...
msf auxiliary(samsung_browser_sop_bypass) > run 

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
