Subject [jira] [Reopened] (CB-7758) Support for content:// URIs
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2014 18:32:36 GMT


Ian Clelland reopened CB-7758:
      Assignee: Ian Clelland

Thinking some more about this, I think that we may have to change the way we're doing it.
This solution opens up a potential security hole, where an app could be targeted specifically
by malware which creates a content provider with the same root package name as the app, and
is therefore granted access to the bridge.

On the 4.x branch, I've merged the bridge access logic with the navigation logic (if you can
navigate the webview to a page, then the page should have access to the bridge). I think we
should do something similar here, and check the config whitelist before granting access.

It would mean that you have to grant access to the content urls in config.xml:

<access src="content://com.ionicframework.ionicapp.jsHybugger/*" />
<access src="content://com.ionicframework.ionicapp.myProvider/*" />

but you probably need that anyway to support using those pages within an app.

Would that work for you?
