Subject: Assert fail w/o other symptoms - op.c:7750 Perl_cv_const_sv_or_av
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 7.9k
Greetings Porters, I have compiled bleadperl with the afl-gcc compiler using: ./Configure -Dusedevel -Dprefix='/usr/local/perl-afl' -Dcc='ccache afl-gcc' -Duselongdouble -Duse64bitall -Doptimize=-g -Uversiononly -Uman1dir -Uman3dir -des AFL_HARDEN=1 make && make test And then fuzzed the resulting binary using: AFL_NO_VAR_CHECK=1 afl-fuzz -i in -o out bin/perl @@ After reducing testcases using `afl-tmin` and performing additional minimization by hand, I have located the following testcase that triggers an assert fail in DEBUGGING perls without any other symptoms in the normal perl interpreter. The testcase is the file: sub(){sub ub(){0}ub ub This is indeed a rather odd thing to do, as it couldn't conceivably be expected to do anything but error, but since normal perls error properly, I suspect that this assert fail could be a sign that a more complex program could cause a more complex error state even in normal perls, or that normal perls could break down the line. dcollins@nightshade64:/usr/local/perl-afl$ ./bin/perl -e 'sub(){sub ub(){0}ub ub' perl: op.c:7750: Perl_cv_const_sv_or_av: Assertion `((svtype)((cv)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVCV || ((svtype)((cv)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVFM' failed.

This can be simplified to: sub ub(){0} ub ub This was introduced by Author: Father Chrysostomos <sprout@cpan.org> Date: Sun Aug 31 20:13:21 2014 -0700 Avoid creating GVs when subs are declared This patch changes ‘sub foo {...}’ declarations to store subroutine references in the stash, to save memory. Typeglobs still notionally exist. Accessing CvGV(cv) will reify them. Hence, currently the savings are lost when a sub call is compiled. $ ./miniperl -e 'sub foo{} BEGIN { warn $::{foo} } foo(); BEGIN { warn $::{f Tony
