Two more Flash 0-days as a result of HackingTeam data leak


As we discusses in our previous blog on recent Adobe 0-day(CVE-2015-5119), there are two more vulnerabilities that surfaced from the same HackingTeam data leak:

  • CVE-2015-5122: Adobe Flash ActionScript3 opaqueBackground Use After Free Vulnerability
  • CVE-2015-5123: Adobe Flash Player BitmapData Remote Code Execution Vulnerability

All three vulnerabilities are use-after-free vulnerabilities; although they occur in different classes. These vulnerabilities trigger the bug by overriding the ‘valueOf()’ function of these classes. During the override, the associated object is either freed or relocated. This makes the associated address invalid which inadvertantly triggers the vulnerability.

Here’s an example of CVE-2015-5123 where a ‘BitmapData’ object is created and disposed by overriding ‘valueOf()’ function:
