Notable flaws have been found, such as a shell command injection bug in the System Tracing app, and flaws in the Settings app that could enable theft of files and leak information about Bluetooth devices, Wi-Fi networks, and emergency contacts.

The Chinese handset maker modified legitimate components from the Android Open Source Project to add extra features, which caused the flaws.

A memory corruption flaw was found in the GetApps app. This flaw comes from an Android library called LiveEventBus. Oversecured reported this issue to the project maintainers over a year ago, but it has not been fixed yet.

The Mi Video app has been found to use implicit intents to send Xiaomi account information, such as username and email address via broadcasts, which could be intercepted by any third-party app installed on the devices using its own broadcast receivers.

Oversecured reported issues to Xiaomi from April 25 to April 30, 2024. Users should update their devices to protect against potential threats.
