# CVE-2014-1303 PoC for Linux CVE-2014-1303 (WebKit Heap based BOF) proof of concept for Linux. This repository demonstrates the WebKit heap based buffer overflow vulnerability (CVE-2014-1303) on **Linux**. **NOTE:** Original exploit is written for Mac OS X and PS4 (PlayStation4). I've ported and tested work on Ubuntu 14.04, [WebKitGTK 2.1.2](https://webkitgtk.org/releases/) ## Usage Firstly you need to run simple web server, ``` $ python server.py ``` then ``` $ cd /path/to/webkitgtk2.1.2/ $ ./Programs/GtkLauncher http://localhost ``` You can run several tests like, - Crash ROP (Jump to invalid address like 0xdeadbeefdeadbeef) - Get PID (Get current PID) - Code Execution (Load and execute payload from outer network) - File System Dump (Dump "/dev" entries) ## Description **exploit.html** ..... trigger vulnerability and jump to ROP chain **scripts/roputil.js** ..... utilities for ROP building **scripts/syscall.js** ..... syscall ROP chains **scripts/code.js** ..... hard coded remote loader **loader/** ..... simple remote loader (written in C) **loader/bin2js** ..... convert binary to js variables (for loader) ## Purpose I've created this WebKit PoC for education in my course. I couldn't, of course, use actual PS4 console in my lecture for legal reason :( ## Reference CVE 2014-1303 Proof Of Concept for PS4 (https://github.com/Fire30/PS4-2014-1303-POC) Liang Chen, WEBKIT EVERYWHERE: SECURE OR NOT?
