Marking s-s because I don't know what happens if we exceed that maximum size specified in the assertion.

Duh, multiplication overflow here results in max value equal to 0. I've got a patch, but need to better evaluate security risk here.
Attached patch fix.patch (obsolete) — Splinter Review
Easy fix: we have logic in DecodeLimits (called when creating a module that defines or imports a memory) to clamp the max memory size when it's too high, but this logic didn't exist in WasmMemoryObject::construct (called when a Memory object is created), so I factored out the clamping chunk into a function that gets called in WasmMemoryObject::construct.

Jan, I wanted to flag Julian as reviewer, but he's not in one of the sec lists. The patch is just a small refactoring, but let me know if you'd prefer somebody else in the wasm team to review it (luke/lars being on pto for some time).

For what it's worth, the security risk is ultra low:

- on WASM_HUGE_MEMORY platforms (i.e. where we use the signal tricks for memory accesses, viz. x64), the buffer will record a maximum memory size of 0, which isn't affecting anything, except when we try to grow the memory. In which case, it will just fail all the time, because any new size would be bigger. (note it generalizes nicely to other values of max that are < initial size, so we're safe on this side.
- on non-WASM_HUGE_MEMORY platforms (x86 / ARM), another assertion triggers later when allocating the array. If this assertion is removed (to see what's the worst that could happen), then the mprotect/second VirtualAlloc call will fail, and trigger a user-visible OOM.

So in the worst case, it's just unexpected behavior, no crashes, and I think no potential for exploitation.

Good catch. Looks fine but I'll forward to jseward just to be sure :)

[Security approval request comment]
How easily could an exploit be constructed based on the patch? I don't think we can make one, see comment 4 for the worst that could happen. It will always result in either a safe crash situation (because of the MOZ_RELEASE_ASSERT), or unexpected errors (as detailed in comment 4).

Do comments in the patch, the check-in comment, or tests included in the patch paint a bulls-eye on the security problem? Yes.

Which older supported branches are affected by this flaw? I think all the branches since WasmMemoryObject was introduced. (probably bug 1284155)

If not all supported branches, which bug introduced the flaw?
(probably bug 1284155)

Do you have backports for the affected branches? If not, how different, hard to create, and risky will they be?
I don't have them, but they shouldn't be too hard. There's a small very-low risk refactoring in this patch, that could be avoided on other branches if needed, but it's not doing much. So branch refactorings could be easily done, with a very-low risk.

How likely is this patch to cause regressions; how much testing does it need?
Local testing on a WASM_HUGE_MEMORY platform and a non-WASM_HUGE_PLATFORM have been made, and all the tests passed. It won't cause performance regressions, and it's being more constraining than what was there before, so it is very not likely to cause any kind of regression.

Clearly sec-approval since Dan made this a sec-low issue. This can just go into trunk but will probably not be backported.

Ryan, did you have a specific question in mind with this needinfo?

Since the patch has landed on Nightly, I suspect it might be about backporting; comment 11 says we should not backport. The patch is small enough and very low risk, so it could easily be backported, if we were to change our minds. That being said, it fixes a benign issue which will just safely crash or trigger unexpected errors in opt builds, so it doesn't look too high priority.
Flags: needinfo?(bbouvier) → needinfo?(ryanvm)
Sorry, that NI was accidental on my part. Given comment 11, I had assumed we didn't want to backport. If you want to do so, feel free to set 62 back to affected and nominate the patch.
