Description Thomas Zehetbauer 2004-10-19 17:44:40 UTC
Running spamassassin/spamd with --auth-ident triggers a rather obscure
bug in authd-1.4.2-8.x86_64. Either a non protocol conformant glibc
error message is returned to the spamd client or the connection is
prematurely terminated with the following message in syslog:

Oct 19 16:27:51 hostmaster kernel: in.authd[27780]: segfault at
0000000000528008 rip 0000002a959012be rsp 0000007fbffff180 error 4

Comment 3 Matthew S. Hallacy 2004-11-12 19:53:39 UTC
This is easy to reproduce:

telnet localhost 113
123, 123
*** glibc detected *** double free or corruption: 0x082066b8 ***

I gave up on the random-identd-daemon-of-the-week game and installed
pidentd, which works fine.

I am seeing the same error.  This is a showstopper for anyone who
wants to use PostgreSQL IDENT authentication across a TCP/IP socket
(with JDBC for example).

authd-1.2.8-1.fc3 seems to work.  Attaching the SRPM for anyone who wants to
try it, since Rawhide packages tend to "just fade away".

Comment 6 Eido Inoue 2004-11-15 23:27:10 UTC
laddr and raddr need to be set to NULL after they're freed in line 663

         else if (*laddr == '\0' || *raddr == '\0') {
             // host address doesn't match peer address, so skip it
-            free(laddr); free(raddr); continue;
         else if (*laddr == '\0' || *raddr == '\0') {
             // host address doesn't match peer address, so skip it
+            free(laddr); free(raddr); laddr = raddr = NULL; continue;
