CVE-2023-44122 is a vulnerability that affects the LockScreenSettings app ("com.lge.lockscreensettings") on devices running certain products. The vulnerability allows for theft of arbitrary files with system privileges. The issue arises from the app launching implicit intents that can be intercepted by third-party apps, which can return arbitrary data to the app's "onActivityResult()" method. The LockScreenSettings app then copies the received file to a specific path and changes the file access mode to world-readable and world-writable. To remediate this vulnerability, users should update their affected products to the latest version provided by the vendor. This vulnerability poses a medium risk to organizations as it could potentially lead to unauthorized access and theft of sensitive files on affected devices.
