This bug crashes the browser without any possibility for user intervention. This is exploitable in the browser. Do *not* click the given link if you want to keep anything in your current Firefox session.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

  (new Date()) Function())

Actual Results:  
jsshell (or Firefox) crash.

Expected Results:  

The built-in Date class doesn't check the class of its "this" object sufficiently. Affected methods are getYear(), getMonth(), getDate() and so on.

This affects all of Date's methods that internally call GetLocalTime() (in jsdate.c) which doesn't check the class of object passed in (compare with JS_InstanceOf() call in GetUTCTime()). The object passed in needs to have at least 2 private slots, like

 a) the global object
 b) Function objects
 c) Iterator objects

The value from the private slot is passed to JSVAL_TO_DOUBLE() without further checks in GetLocalTime(), leading to bogus pointer dereference for objects not of class Date.

In addition to adding this to the test suite, this sort of thing could be added to jsparsefuzz.js (i.e. the fuzzer should be modified to use <method>.call() with random arguments if it's not already doing this).

I don't have time right now to check out a current tree and post a patch and will not get around to it until some time next week.

fix v1

The essence of the fix is the addition of the missing instanceof check for GetAndCacheLocalTime. I also took an opportunity in the patch to replace heavy JS_(Get|Set)ReservvedSlot calls with direct slot access for simpler code.

Igor's patch should fix the issue AFAICS. If needed I can report back next week when I get a chance to build trunk and verify.

fix v1

The patch applies to 1.9.0 branch as-is.
Comment 7 User image Igor Bukanov 2008-09-01 02:47:30 PDT
The bug only exists on 1.9.0 and later and is an regression from the bug 340992.
Comment 8 User image Mike Shaver (:shaver -- probably not reading bugmail closely) 2008-09-01 14:44:19 PDT
Is it worth doing a version of the patch that only has the fix and not the cleanup, for risk reduction on 1.9.0.x?

There's no risk reduction in messing with a reviewed patch that cuts out overhead and doubt about reserved slot complexities that do not affect fslots' dimension or lifetime. Making more variation between trees adds tiny risk too, probably more than any risk in sticking this patch in as-is. But it's too tiny to estimate or measure, or to be worth arguing much about.

fix for 1.9.0

It turned out the patch required a trivial change for 1.9.0. It applies as-is, but the trunk version uses const to define constant names. But that does not work with in C sources as in C such constants are not real constant expressions. So I replaced constants with the preprocessor macros. 

Here is the plain diff between the trunk and the branch patches:
