I'm wondering what security threats I should be aware of if I set up a testing farm (like STF) which will have several Android devices connected to PCs over USB.
- The Android devices will have USB debugging enabled and the PC will be able to communicate with the Android device
- I plan to run tests using frameworks like Appium but will also use ADB commands directly on connected devices
- I will only have trusted devices connected to the PCs (as in I'm certain that the hardware is secure)
- However, I may have untrusted apps installed on those trusted devices (random apps downloaded from the Internet that could be malicious)
Is there a possibility here that the untrustworthy apps that may be installed on the Android devices can somehow compromise the PCs (and the network) with the USB connection from the Android device to the PC being the only way they can talk to the PCs?
