I'm new to android pentesting and I would like to know :

if sending an object created via the result of intent.getSerializableExtra("EXTRA_TEST");

to handler.postDelayed(TheObject,500) could lead to a vulnerability ?


d.a aObject = (d.a) intent.getSerializableExtra("EXTRA_BUY_TAB_START_POSITION_EXPLORE");
if (aVar2 != null) {
    this.handler.postDelayed(new e(aVar2), 500);

I imagine that if we send an intent with a serialized runnable the target application would execute the malicious code... Is it right ?

edit : "d" is : public final class d extends Fragment and d.a is

public static final class a {
        private a() {

        public /* synthetic */ a(DefaultConstructorMarker defaultConstructorMarker) {

        public final d a() {
            return new d();

I hope this is some automatically decompiled code because it's horrendous to read.

Since the Runnable object is retrieved from a key/value map (the intent object) you could force a custom runnable into the intent map at the specific key "EXTRA_BUY_TAB_START_POSITION_EXPLORE" so that it would be run after 500ms.

In you code you need to clarify :

  • What is aVar2 ?
  • What does the class "e" do ?
  • Your d.a object is never used in your sample

I hope that will lead you to the correct path.

  • Oh sorry I badly renamed aVar2 the d.a is : d.a aVar2 = ... and not aObject The e class is just an interface (pastebin.com/p3VFG8dS) – Neolex Oct 8 '19 at 14:12
  • I'm trying to create a payload but I get the error : java.lang.RuntimeException: Parcelable encountered ClassNotFoundException reading a Serializable object (name = fr.neolexsecurity.rceapp.a) Do you know How should I do that ? – Neolex Oct 8 '19 at 15:14
