Microsoft Internet Explorer 'onreadystatechange' Use After Free Vulnerability
HTML Object Memory Corruption Vulnerability (CVE-2010-0491, MS10-018)
Vulnerability Reported
The vulnerability occurs when an HTML object with an 'onreadystatechange' event handler is not properly freed. This event is used to perform actions when the state of some HTML object changes; for example, when a form has data input. Specifically, when certain properties of the object are changed, the event handler function object is freed, but a reference to it remains. When the object is later accessed, this invalid memory is treated as an object pointer, and one of its members is used to make an indirect function call.
