Cuberoot

Cuberoot was released May 17, 2013 for the Asus Cube by the Exploitee.rs team. This root leverages a local command execution vulnerability within a Unix socket for NFS mounting. This socket interfaces with a helper application that doesn’t properly sanitize input allowing local code execution.

This particular vulnerability is made better by being able to be exploited from within an Android app, and allows us to provide users with an easy method of patching their device to prevent another application from exploiting the bug for nefarious reasons.

Cuberoot will:

  • Root your Asus Cube.
  • Install SuperSu.
  • Modify the Flash Player to bypass website blocks on streaming media sites.
  • Disable automatic updates.
  • Collect anonymous statistical information about your device.
  • Allow you to patch this vulnerability, which prevents malicious applications from using this bug.
