Flash Seats Mobile App for Android, version 1.7.9 and earlier, and for iOS, version 1.9.51 and earlier, fails to properly validate SSL certificates provided by HTTPS connections, which may enable an attacker to conduct man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks.
CWE-295: Improper Certificate Validation - CVE-2017-3190
Flash Seats Mobile App is a sports and entertainment ticket management application. On both Android and iOS devices, the app fails to properly validate SSL certificates provided by HTTPS connections, which means that an attacker in the position to perform MITM attacks may be able to obtain sensitive account information such as login credentials.
An attacker on the same network as the Android or iOS device may be able to view or modify network traffic that should have been protected by HTTPS, which may lead to the exposure of sensitive account information, including login credentials.
