Windows Type-Confusion / Memory Corruption

Windows Type-Confusion / Memory Corruption
Posted Sep 14, 2015
Authored by Google Security Research, matttait

The Windows Kernel is subject to two related kernel-mode type-confusion vulnerabilities inside win32k!xxxRemoteReconnect. In both cases, a user-mode parameter passed to the syscall is incorrectly resolved to its underlying kernel representation via ObReferenceObjectByHandle passing NULL as the "ObType" field (rather than *IoFileTypeObject and *IoDeviceTypeObject respectively). Because the type is not checked, if a handle of a type other than a HANDLE to a file and a device are passed, the kernel incorrectly uses the underlying representation of the object as a PFILE_OBJECT and a PDEVICE_OBJECT, causing memory corruption in the kernel.
