Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 193763
Buffer overrun in add_minsym_members
Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:12:49 EST
Description of problem: String buffer overflow
(allocation fails to include room for trailing '\0')
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In ddd (gdb console) type
glibc detected memory corruption in free.
The maximum extra size of the string should be 10, not 9.
I calculate it as sizeof("'::base$(")+1.
Created attachment 130337 [details]
Correctly calculate size of string to allocate
Patch confirmed as required and valid - for Red Hat patch
