android – Admob Security Exception : Permission Denial

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I tap on my AdView and open alibaba app page in play store and then installed it. After that, I started to get this error and my app crashed whenever I tap on the AdView. After uninstalling this alibaba app, I was able to tap and view the ads.

Now I’m curious why this happened?

Caused by java.lang.SecurityException: Permission Denial: starting Intent { act=android.intent.action.VIEW dat=https://www.googleadservices.com/... flg=0x10000000 cmp=com.alibaba.intl.android.apps.poseidon/com.alibaba.android.intl.weex.activity.WeexPageActivity } from ProcessRecord{800f07c 11735:com.figengungor.konuscevir/u0a452} (pid=11735, uid=10452) not exported from uid 10256

Here is my full crash report:

How to&Answers:

It’s not a bug in your app, but this is a bug in the “Alibaba B2B trade” app. From that app’s apk:

$ aapt l -a Alibaba\ com\ B2B\ Trade\ App_v4.15.1.apk | grep -A 17 WeexPageActivity 
      E: activity (line=1284)
        A: android:theme(0x01010000)[email protected]
        A: android:name(0x01010003)="com.alibaba.android.intl.weex.activity.WeexPageActivity" (Raw: "com.alibaba.android.intl.weex.activity.WeexPageActivity")
        A: android:exported(0x01010010)=(type 0x12)0x0
        A: android:screenOrientation(0x0101001e)=(type 0x10)0xffffffff
        A: android:configChanges(0x0101001f)=(type 0x11)0x4a0
        E: intent-filter (line=1290)
          E: action (line=1291)
            A: android:name(0x01010003)="android.intent.action.VIEW" (Raw: "android.intent.action.VIEW")
          E: category (line=1293)
            A: android:name(0x01010003)="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" (Raw: "android.intent.category.DEFAULT")
          E: category (line=1294)
            A: android:name(0x01010003)="com.alibaba.android.intl.category.WEEX" (Raw: "com.alibaba.android.intl.category.WEEX")
          E: data (line=1296)
            A: android:scheme(0x01010027)="http" (Raw: "http")
          E: data (line=1297)
            A: android:scheme(0x01010027)="https" (Raw: "https")
          E: data (line=1298)
            A: android:scheme(0x01010027)="file" (Raw: "file")

It looks like they registered http/https/file schemes (without specifying an host) to an unexported Activity. So every app that tries to start an intent with one of these scheme will crash.

My 2 cents: Android shouldn’t crash the app, it should ignore unexported activities in this case.

More details here. They’ve been notified and should fix their app soon.
