# Microsoft Chakra JIT Server Out-Of-Bounds Write Vulnerability

 Microsoft Chakra JIT server out-of-bounds write when processing Js::OpCode::ProfiledLoopStart opcode 

CVE-2017-8659


There is an issue in Chakra JIT server that can be potentially exploited to compromise the JIT process from a compromised browser content process. Bugs like this could potentially be used to bypass ACG (Arbitrary Code Guard) in Microsoft Edge.

The issue has been confirmed on a ChakraCore build from source.

Chakra JIT server takes bytecode as an input from the calling process. When processing the Js::OpCode::ProfiledLoopStart opcode in IRBuilder::BuildUnsigned1() function in IRBuilder.cpp there is this line

this->m_saveLoopImplicitCallFlags[num] = saveOpnd;

where num is client-controlled (it's an usigned char following the Js::OpCode::ProfiledLoopStart opcode).

m_saveLoopImplicitCallFlags is allocated in IRBuilder.h as

m_saveLoopImplicitCallFlags = (IR::Opnd**)func->m_alloc->Alloc(sizeof(IR::Opnd*) * loopCount);

where loopCount is also client-controlled (workItemData->jitData->bodyData->loopCount).

Thus if a client sets num larger than loopCount, an out-of-bounds write will occur. There appear to be no bounds checks related to this array, there are some asserts that happen *after* the overrwrite already occurred and they will not be present in the Release builds.


Note that there is also an integer overflow when m_saveLoopImplicitCallFlags is being allocated:
sizeof(IR::Opnd*) * loopCount
that's going to affect 32-bit processes.


Speaking of integer overflows that will affect 32-bit processes, there are also several other similar instances such as 
this->tempMap = (SymID*)m_tempAlloc->AllocZero(sizeof(SymID) * tempCount);
in IRBuilder.cpp (as far as I can tell tempCount is going to be controllable by the user) an probably other places.


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.
