MSIE 9 IEFRAME CMarkupPointer::MoveToGap use-after-free
=======================================================
(The fix and CVE number for this issue are not known)

Synopsis
--------
A specially crafted web-page can trigger a use-after-free vulnerability
in Microsoft Internet Explorer 9. The use appears to happen only once
almost immediately after the free, which makes practical exploitation
unlikely.

Known affected software and attack vectors
------------------------------------------
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 9

An attacker would need to get a target user to open a specially
crafted web-page. Disabling JavaScript should prevent an attacker
from triggering the vulnerable code path.

Details
-------
It appears there is an implementation bug in the `splitText` method of
`CDATASection` (Text) objects in SVG. `splitText` should split a `Text`
node into two `Text` nodes, by creating a new `Text` node and moving
some of the text data from the original node to the new node. After
this, each node contains a sub-string of the original text.

The bug can be triggered by calling this method with zero as the index
argument on a `CDATASection` which contains some text. In this case, the
code will return a new `Text` node that contains the entire text but it
does not remove the text from the original node. I am speculating that
this causes an additional reference to the test data without increasing
its reference counter. This failure to increase the reference counter
can cause this reference counter to drop to zero before all references
are destroyed.

Time-line
---------
* Unknown date: This vulnerability was found through fuzzing.
* 12 December 2012: This vulnerability was submitted to EIP.
* 21 January 2013: This vulnerability was rejected by EIP.
* Unknown date: This vulnerability was address by Microsoft.
* 15 December 2016: Details of this vulnerability are released.

Cheers,
