How to fix?

Upgrade cordova-android to version 4.1.1 or higher.

Overview

cordova-android is an Android application library that allows for Cordova-based projects to be built for the Android Platform.

Affected versions of the package are vulnerable to Arbitrary Code Execution. When an application relies on a remote server, improperly implements a JavaScript whitelist protection mechanism. This allows attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted URI.
