Microsoft Edge Chakra JIT BoundFunction::NewInstance Bug

Microsoft Edge Chakra JIT BoundFunction::NewInstance Bug
Posted Jul 12, 2018
Authored by Google Security Research, lokihardt

Microsoft Edge Chakra JIT suffers from a bug. BoundFunction::NewInstance is used to handle calls to a bound function. The method first allocates a new argument array and copies the prepended arguments and others into the new argument array and calls the actual function. The problem is, it doesn't care about the CallFlags_NewTarget flag which indicates that there's an extra argument (new.target) at the end of the argument array. So the size of the new argument array created with the CallFlags_NewTarget flag will be always 1 less then required, this leads to an out-of-bounds read.

CVE-2018-8139


BoundFunction::NewInstance is used to handle calls to a bound function. The method first allocates a new argument array and copies the prepended arguments and others into the new argument array and calls the actual function. The problem is, it doesn't care about the CallFlags_NewTarget flag which indicates that there's an extra argument (new.target) at the end of the argument array. So the size of the new argument array created with the CallFlags_NewTarget flag will be always 1 less then required, this leads to an OOB read.

PoC:
function func() {
new.target.x;
}

let bound = func.bind({}, 1);

Reflect.construct(bound, []);

or a patch has been made broadly available, the bug report will become
