AntennaHouse DMC HTMLFilter DHFSummary Code Execution Vulnerability

May 4, 2017
CVE Number

CVE-2016-8384

Summary

An exploitable heap corruption vulnerability exists in the DHFSummary functionality of AntennaHouse DMC HTMLFilter. A specially crafted doc file can cause a heap corruption resulting in arbitrary code execution. An attacker can provide a malicious doc file to trigger this vulnerability.

Tested Versions

AntennaHouse DMC HTMLFilter shipped with MarkLogic 8.0-5.5

Details

This vulnerability is present in the AntennaHouse DMC HTMLFilter which is used among others to convert doc files to (x)html form.
This product is mainly used by MarkLogic for doc document conversions as part of their web based document search and rendering engine. A specially crafted DOC file can lead to heap corruption and ultimately to remote code execution.

Let’s investigate this vulnerability. After executing the DOC to html converter with a malformed doc file as an input we can easily observe a couple of flaws using Valgrind:

We see in the first couple lines of the Valgrind output that in the DHFSummary function the argument passed to malloc is equal 2:

`Address 0x443da64 is 2 bytes after a block of size 2 alloc'd`

The argument value is quite small and it can be the result of a malformed field coming directly from the document. Let’s take a glance at the pseudo code of this function and investigate origin of malloc argument.

The pseudo code looks in the following way:

Line 1 signed int cdecl DHFSummary(structa1 *a1, int a2, int a3) Line 2 { Line 3 (...) Line 4 if ( (!v7 && !v8) == v7 ) Line 5 { Line 6 DMC2OLEreadStream(a1->streamHandle, (char )&bufferPtr, 4u); Line 7 offset = DHFSumGetDWord((int)a1, (int)&bufferPtr); Line 8 DMC2OLEseekStream(a1->streamHandle, offset, 0); Line 9 DMC_2OLEreadStream(a1->streamHandle, (char )&bufferPtr, 4u); Line 10 someSize = DHFSumGetDWord((int)a1, (int)&bufferPtr); Line 11 v35 = DMCmalloc(someSize + 2); Line 12 if ( !v35 ) Line 13 { Line 14 DMC2OLEcloseStream(a1->streamHandle, v29, v31, 8202); Line 15 return 12; Line 16 } Line 17 DMC2OLEreadStream(a1->streamHandle, (char *)(v35 + 4), (unsigned int16)(someSize - 4)); Line 18 (...)

At line 10 the DWORD value someSize is read directly from the file and is later use as a malloc argument. In our case someSize equals 0 which corresponds to the Valgrind output (since someSize + 2 = 2). From which region of the file is this value coming from and with what structure is it related?

The name of the function suggests that the value comes from the Document Summary Information:

The value of someSize is read from offset 0x3cb0.

Line 17 is the place where the integer underflow appears and causes further issues. At line 11, someSize -4 bytes are read from the file into the buffer v35. Because someSize equals 0, the result of the substraction is: 0xfffffffc, but since it gets cast to unsigned __int16 so we end up with the value 0xfffc.

The size of the v35 buffer is 2, while in the function DMC_2OLEreadStream, 0xfffc bytes are being read into that buffer, causing a heap-based buffer overflow resulting in heap corruption.
