gdb backtrace is not useful for FORTIFY crashes in identifying which strcpy is at fault.

jakub says this is likely effected by this compiler change.  If the binary is built with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=1 instead of 2 and it works, then this is confirmation that this is the issue.  I have not successfully built it with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=1 yet.

tftp-hpa-0.49/tftp/tftp.c

static int
makerequest(int request, const char *name,
            struct tftphdr *tp, const char *mode)
{
    char *cp;

    tp->th_opcode = htons((u_short) request);
    cp = (char *)&(tp->th_stuff);
    strcpy(cp, name);
    cp += strlen(name);
    *cp++ = '\0';
    strcpy(cp, mode);
    cp += strlen(mode);
    *cp++ = '\0';
    return (cp - (char *)tp);
}

The first strcpy() is where it crashes.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2009-08-05 02:03:49 UTC
This function pre-processed.

static int
makerequest(int request, const char *name,
            struct tftphdr *tp, const char *mode)
{
    char *cp;

    tp->th_opcode = (__extension__ ({ register unsigned short int __v, __x = ((u_short) request); if (__builtin_constant_p (__x)) __v = ((((__x) >> 8) & 0xff) | (((__x) & 0xff) << 8)); else __asm__ ("rorw $8, %w0" : "=r" (__v) : "0" (__x) : "cc"); __v; }));
    cp = (char *)&(tp->th_u.tu_stuff);
    strcpy(cp, name);
    cp += strlen(name);
    *cp++ = '\0';
    strcpy(cp, mode);
    cp += strlen(mode);
    *cp++ = '\0';
    return (cp - (char *)tp);
}

/usr/include/arpa/tftp.h contains the definition of struct tftphdr.

struct  tftphdr {
        short   th_opcode;                      /* packet type */
        union {
                unsigned short  tu_block;       /* block # */
                short   tu_code;                /* error code */
                char    tu_stuff[1];            /* request packet stuff */
        } __attribute__ ((__packed__)) th_u;
        char    th_data[1];                     /* data or error string */
} __attribute__ ((__packed__));

#define th_block        th_u.tu_block
#define th_code         th_u.tu_code
#define th_stuff        th_u.tu_stuff
#define th_msg          th_data

jakub, do you need any more?

Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2009-08-05 07:22:17 UTC
th_u isn't the last field in the struct, so flexible array member and similar exception definitely doesn't apply here.  You can use memcpy instead of strcpy (memcpy is always allowed to cross field boundaries), after all you are computing strlen (name) immediately afterwards anyway, so just trplacing
strcpy(cp, name); cp += strlen(name); *cp++ = '\0'; with size_t name_len = strlen(name) + 1; memcpy(cp, name, name_len); cp += name_len; and similarly for mode should work.
