A heap corruption was observed in Oracle Java Runtime Environment version 8u202 (latest at the time of this writing) while fuzz-testing the processing of TrueType, implemented in a proprietary t2k library. It manifests itself in the form of the following (or similar) crash:

The crash reproduces on both Windows and Linux platforms. On Linux, it can be also triggered under Valgrind (many out-of-bounds reads and writes in sc_FindExtrema4 were ommitted in the log below):

On Windows, the crash also reliably reproduces with PageHeap enabled for the java.exe process:

  This exception may be expected and handled.

In total, we have encountered crashes in the t2k!sc_FindExtrema4 function in three different locations, in two cases while adding 1 to an invalid memory location, and in one case while adding 2 to an out-of-bounds address. Attached with this report are three mutated testcases (one for each crashing code location), and a simple Java program used to reproduce the vulnerability by loading TrueType fonts specified through a command-line parameter.
