Space Coast Credit Union SCCU Mobile for Android and iPhone fails to properly validate SSL certificates
Space Coast Credit Union SCCU Mobile for Android, version 188.8.131.524 and earlier, and for iOS, version 2.2 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-2017-3212
SCCU Mobile is a banking 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.
The CERT/CC is currently unaware of a practical solution to this problem and recommends the following workarounds.
Do not use affected versions of the application
