October 2022 HarmonyOS security fixes:

The October 2022 security patch fixes exploits and issues in the Kernel, System, Application section, and third-party libraries within Huawei Phones.


The newest security patch fixes 12 CVEs in different levels of the Kernel section. The fix impacts various CVEs that are the cause of out-of-bounds reading and affect data confidentiality. Also, successful exploitation of the vulnerability can cause unauthorized access to the HISP module and memory overwriting.


The patch fixes a total of 19 vulnerabilities in this section from the critical, high, and medium grades. It identifies the Use-After-Free (UAF) vulnerability in the BT Hfp Client module and fixes it. Resolves another critical CVE in the HW_KEYMASTER module which may cause malicious construction of data and result in out-of-bounds access.

Meanwhile, it fixes some more bugs that affect data confidentiality, data integrity, and fingerprint service.


The application section includes one high and three medium-level exploits. The latest patch resolves severe vulnerabilities in the HwAirlink module and the facial recognition module. Noticeably, the successful exploitation of these exposures results in the modification of sensitive data and may allow attackers to obtain process control permissions and information leakage.
