Dear List,

I'm writing on behalf of the Check Point Vulnerability Discovery Team to publish the following vulnerability.

Memory corruption when Adobe Shockwave Player parses .dir media file (duplicated KEY* reference in mmap record)
CVE-2010-4088


INTRODUCTION

Adobe Shockwave Player is the Adobe plugin to many different browsers to view rich-media content on the web including 
animations, interactive 
presentations, and online entertainment.

Adobe Shockwave Player does not properly parse .dir media file.  mmap records contains offsets and lengths of all other 
records.  One of such records is KEY*. It also contains references to other records. Duplicated references to the same 
KEY* chunk causes problems in Chrome.

This problem was confirmed in the following versions of Adobe Shockwave Player and Windows, other versions may be also 
affected.

Shockwave Player version 11.5.8.612, Module DIRAPI.dll on WinXP_PT SP3 Google Chrome 6.0.472.55


CVSS Scoring System

The CVSS score is: 9
        Base Score: 10
        Temporal Score: 9
We used the following values to calculate the scores:
        Base score is: AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C
        Temporal score is: E:POC/RL:U/RC:C


TRIGGERING THE PROBLEM

To trigger the problem a PoC file (repro14.dir) is available to interested parties. 


DETAILS


Due to the very nature of the problem and the way the browser handles it internally, it is very difficult to debug.  
The browser catches the
failure.

ModLoad: 041c0000 041c7000   C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\SHOCKW~1\xtras\CBrowser.x32
(924.a78): Break instruction exception - code 80000003 (first chance)

ntdll!DbgBreakPoint:

After the break point hit, we see the browser just handles the crash of the plugin:

Forcing the browser to run in single-mode process we have:
