Graphite 2 use-after-free crash
The testcase is reproducible with a ASAN enabled build. If necessary, reload the testcase a few times. If you have not a ASAN enabled build yet, follow the instructions described here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Building_Firefox_with_Address_Sanitizer
Fixed in repo. Keep 'em coming :)
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla15
Whiteboard: [asan][sec-critical] → [asan][sg:high]
Is the ESR10 branch affected by this sg:high?
No; the graphite lib isn't present there.
Verified fixed in my May 10 post-fix ASAN build on OS X.
Status: RESOLVED → VERIFIED
If we have graphite2 in Firefox 13 we need to uplift this patch.
Comment on attachment 621912 [details] [diff] [review] patch, cherry-pick fix from graphite repository [Approval Request Comment] Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): graphite font-shaping library User impact if declined: users who enable graphite may be vulnerable to a crash caused by a malicious/buggy font Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): see comment #8 Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): minimal risk, just adds a missing bounds check String or UUID changes made by this patch: none Nominating this for aurora (14) on the basis of comment #9. The patch here doesn't apply to beta (13), because we took a complete graphite refresh for mozilla-14 in bug 746975. IMO, the security concern here is relatively minor, given that graphite is preffed off by default and only likely to be enabled by a small minority of users with a specific interest in trying it (primarily for "exotic" writing systems). I see no point in trying to backport just this specific patch to the mozilla-13 version; if we're sufficiently concerned about it, we should backport the complete graphite update (but personally I don't think it is important to do so for a preffed-off feature).
