Severity: high

Downloads Resources over HTTP



apk-parser is a tool to extract Android Manifest info from an APK file.

apk-parser versions below 0.1.6 download binary resources over HTTP, which leaves it vulnerable to MITM attacks. It may be possible to cause remote code execution (RCE) by swapping out the requested binary with an attacker controlled binary if the attacker is on the network or positioned in between the user and the remote server.


Update to version 0.1.6 or later.
