Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-07-23 08:37:16 EDT
Description of problem:

hivex segfaults with an assert fail if you try to add a child
node to certain registry keys.  I have a test registry (which
I cannot release) which exhibits this problem:

  $ hivexsh -w SYSTEM

  Welcome to hivexsh, the hivex interactive shell for examining
  Windows Registry binary hive files.
  Type: 'help' for help summary
        'quit' to quit the shell
  SYSTEM\> cd \ControlSet001\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase
  SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase> add pci#ven_1af4&dev_1001&subsys_00000000
  hivexsh: hivex.c:2476: hivex_node_add_child: Assertion `old_offs != 0' failed.
  Aborted (core dumped)

(3) hivexsh will segfault and (if configured right) will core dump.

The stack trace is:

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

hivex 1.3.7 & hivex from git both test, both fail

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

(Will come later once I have a scrubbed registry which
I can release).
