Kaspersky AntiVirus - '.DEX' File Format Memory Corruption

EDB-ID:

38735

CVE:



Platform:

Windows

Published:

2015-11-16

Source: https://code.google.com/p/google-security-research/issues/detail?id=529

The attached testcase was found by fuzzing DEX files, and results in a heap overflow with a wild memcpy. Note that Kaspersky catch exceptions and continue execution, so running into unmapped pages doesn't terminate the process, this should make exploitation quite realistic.

(bb8.ac0): Access violation - code c0000005 (first chance)
First chance exceptions are reported before any exception handling.
This exception may be expected and handled.
