Closed Bug 640339 (CVE-2011-1202) Opened 9 years ago Closed 9 years ago
generate-id() function leaks information about valid heap addresses
As demonstrated at the test URL and announced on Chris Evans' blog the XPath generate-id() function returns a valid heap address which might provide a useful handle in other attacks. Appears to affect all browsers one way or another (Chrome was patched before announcing this). http://scarybeastsecurity.blogspot.com/2011/03/multi-browser-heap-address-leak-in-xslt.html
Needs a bit more testing, but I think this should do it. I originally used the address of the txExecutionState itself, but since that usually lives on the stack it's possible that that'll be on a predictable address.

Dan, I don't know how you want to do about landing this on branches given that I don't think it can land on trunk right now.
Comment on attachment 518223 [details] [diff] [review] patch to fix Approved for 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168, a=dveditz for release-drivers
S'ok, we'll take the branches now and 4.0.1 when we can.
Checked in to branches: http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-1.9.1/rev/768b54fa2f7d http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-1.9.2/rev/a201c429788b Leaving open as it hasn't been check in to trunk yet. Also nominating for the 2.0 branch as that'll likely be a separate landing.

Tarak, what is this attachment supposed to be? It looks like an executable.
