At this point, the best available information is that this is a
vulnerability in some part of open-source software under
https://android.googlesource.com/platform/packages/apps/Email/
(although we don't know the specific lines of code at fault), that
there is a security impact for a fully specified attack methodology,
and that there isn't any clear evidence that this is a duplicate of a
finding from a previous year. Use CVE-2015-1574.

This might not be a security fix. The goal of this fix might be to
ensure that other types of blank Content-Disposition headers are
considered equivalent to "Content-Disposition: inline" so that the
"treat text and images as viewables" code path is used.
