[ Sunbird 0.9 Array Overrun (code execution) ] Author: Maksymilian Arciemowicz and sp3x Date: - Dis.: 07.05.2009 - Pub.: 11.12.2009 CVE: CVE-2009-0689 CWE: CWE-199 Risk: High Remote: Yes Affected Software: - Sunbird 0.9 NOTE: Prior versions may also be affected. Original URL: --- 0.Description --- Mozilla Sunbird is a cross-platform calendar application, built upon Mozilla Toolkit. Our goal is to provide you with a full-featured and easy to use calendar application that you can use around the world. --- 1. Sunbird 0.9 Remote Array Overrun (Arbitrary code execution) --- The main problem exist in dtoa implementation. Sunbird has the same dtoa as Firefox, etc. Problem exist in js3250.dll (version 4.0.0 - Netscape 32-bit JavaScript Module) DLL library and it is the same like SREASONRES:20090625. but fix for SREASONRES:20090625, used by openbsd was not good. More information about fix for openbsd and similars SREASONRES:20091030, We can create any number of float, which will overwrite the memory. In Kmax has defined 15. Functions in dtoa, don't checks Kmax limit, and it is possible to call 16<= elements of freelist array. --- 2. Proof of Concept (PoC) --- If we use Sunbird to open or import crafted "ics" file, Sunbird will crash. For example ----------------------- #!/usr/bin/perl # # sp3x # tested on WinXp SP3 my $header = "BEGIN:VCALENDAR\n". "PRODID:-// Mozilla Calendar V1.1//EN\n". "VERSION:2.0\n". "BEGIN:VTIMEZONE\n".
