Trend Micro Enterprise Mobile Security Android Application - MITM SSL Certificate Vulnerability (CVE-2016-9319)


"Trend Micro Mobile Security is the client app for Trend Micro’s enterprise mobility platform. Trend Micro Mobile Security for enterprises lets IT administrators enroll, manage and secure employee mobile devices. With built in Mobile device management, app management, app reputation and device AV, Mobile Security is a powerful tool for enterprises that want to enable their mobile employees securely."



The Trend Micro Enterprise Mobile Security Android application (version 9.7.1182 and below), does not validate the SSL certificate it receives when connecting to the mobile application login server.


An attacker who can perform a man in the middle attack may present a bogus SSL certificate which the application will accept silently. Sensitive information could be captured by an attacker without the user's knowledge.
