The GPU driver of Mate 9 Huawei smart phones with software before MHA-AL00B 8.0.0.334(C00) and Mate 9 Pro Huawei smart phones with software before LON-AL00B 8.0.0.334(C00) has a memory double free vulnerability. An attacker tricks a user into installing a malicious application, and the application can call special API, which triggers double free and causes a system crash or arbitrary code execution.

Weakness

The product calls free() twice on the same memory address, potentially leading to modification of unexpected memory locations.
