About addJavascriptInterface abuse in Android Browsers

Image
So I started out writing this post like most of the other posts I've been writing this year, just another rash vulnerability disclosure; but I decided to turn it into more of a discussion about the addJavascriptInterface vulnerability.

I base my discussions here on some vulnerabilities I've found in various Android Browser apps. I'm going to specifically talk about some novel methods I used to enumerate Browser applications using JavaScript bridges insecurely. Obviously, in finding out how to detail the existence of the vulnerability you will also learn how to protect your applications from the discussed exploitation methods.
