chm file to demonstrate the crash

Description of problem:
chm_http gets frequent SEGV crashes

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run on a random .chm file:    chm_http e.chm
2. point browser to localhost:8080
3. click on links in the file

Actual results: segv crash
0x0000555555555654 in service_request (fd=<optimized out>, file=0x555555768010) at chm_http.c:357
357	    if (strncmp(end+1, "HTTP", 4) == 0)

Expected results: no crash, correct operation

Additional info: I suspect that it doesn't matter which .CHM file to use, but just in case, I include the one I tried to read
Comment 1 Przemek Klosowski 2017-06-23 22:36:35 EDT
The code in service_request():356 :
    end = strrchr(buffer, ' ');
    if (strncmp(end+1, "HTTP", 4) == 0)

is incorrect because strrchr() can return NULL if the string is not found, causing the NULL dereference in the next line.

I observed this when buffer is read as empty (i.e. it contains only NULLs).
The correct code should probably explicitly check for that null:

    end = strrchr(buffer, ' ');
    if (!end && strncmp(end+1, "HTTP", 4) == 0)

although in that case service_request() will produce a CONTENT_500 and I am not sure if that's warranted---it's unclear when the empty buffer will appear.
