Expired Pointers of an Exported DLL Function

0 komentar
Once the dynamic-link library (DLL) is loaded in the memory, the address of an exported function is usually retrieved. The address is copied into a variable. Before the program executes the exported function, it retrieves its address from the variable. A potential vulnerability exists if the DLL is unloaded but the variable still contain the address of the exported function that was previously valid.

Here is one approach to get started the investigation into a potential vulnerability.

Let's assume the debugger executes the target application. We configure it to break-in when a DLL is unloaded. We know the base address and the size of the DLL as the debugger displays it. When the debugger breaks in we search for pointers that fall into this region. We set data access breakpoint for each pointer, and resume the execution to see if the pointers are accessed.

We may find that some of the pointers set to NULL when the breakpoint is triggered. This is most likely to prevent the access to invalid memory.

We may find that other expired pointers get copied into another memory location. This could be suspicious as we don't normally read expired pointers, albeit, often whole structures get copied even if they contain members that are no longer used.

We may find that some of the breakpoints are not triggered, and we need to analyze further if they can be reached from the execution flow.

Flash Player Unloading Vulnerability

0 komentar
Opera unloads Flash Player after two minutes of not being used. Flash Player can create dialog that can run even when the player itself is unloaded. When it's unloaded, the running dialog makes a call back to the unloaded module, in a time window.

If an attacker can exploit the time window between the unload and the dereference, it's possible to redirect the execution flow.

While experimenting, I used heap spray to inject 0xCC bytes to the deleted memory. I succeeded once of many attempts and this suggests it's practically possible to create an exploit that could inject malicious code within the time window.

When investigated this vulnerability, I wanted evidence to the question: what module unloads the Flash Player? I used Windbg to place breakpoint at unload events. I let the application to trigger the unload events, and when the debugger hit the breakpoint, printed the call stack.

I saw the Flash Player was freed by Opera indeed.

I saw that thread 88ac.1700 is created by the Flash Player. When the player is unloaded the thread is still running. Finally, the thread calls back to the unloaded module. Therefore, I knew Flash Player created the thread that calls back to its own module that has been unloaded.

And here is some interesting observation.

When started to look into triggering a dialog in Flash Player I created the following ActionScript that executes an infinite loop.
class InfiniteLoop {
static function main() {
           for (var i = 0; i < 1;) {}
I built the Flash file with the command below.
mtasc.exe -swf InfiniteLoop.swf -main -header 125:125:20
The Flash file triggers a slow script warning dialog. I was able to unload and to crash the Flash Player while the dialog was still running. I achieved this with version 11.4.402.278. When reported the problem to Opera they couldn't reproduce it. That time there was a Flash Player update, and I found it out that they used the latest version of Flash Player that was 11.4.402.287. With the latest version, I couldn't reproduce the problem either.

It got me thinking if Adobe fixed security problem either silently or "accidentally". When I checked the release notes of the latest version I didn't see indication of this kind of fix. I still don't know what had happened between the two releases but thought to investigate this issue further. I tried to trigger the bug via different code paths. I looked at my Flash file collection to dig out a file that triggers a dialog. And here it is, with the one I found, I could crash the player with the same call stack as before.

Initially, I thought Opera could fix this issue by leaving the module permanent in the address space, so I reported this to Opera. However, they notified Adobe after confirming it's not the problem in Opera (though they considered it as a stability issue). Adobe received the report at the end of November, 2012. The bug is now fixed in the security update that has a number of APSB13-09 at 12 March, 2013.

The preliminary version of this blog post was reviewed by Adobe. The preliminary version is same to the published version apart from some changes in the wording.
