Description Eugene Grosbein freebsd_committer 2022-01-18 14:13:49 UTC
Created attachment 231129 [details]

This commit changed contrib/bc/configure from regular file to the symlink to configure.sh


gitup-0.96 crashes with SIGBUS trying to repair or update local repository copy when old (pre-commit) tree is present:

1) The function save_repairs() contains logic error calling calculate_file_hash() function to calculate hash of local file passing file mode of an object from the repository. The function calculate_file_hash() assumes that mode describes local file, calls readlink() for supposed symlink, but readlink() returns -1 with errno=EINVAL. This returned value ("uint32_t bytes_read" assigned with -1) is used in a statement:

temp_path[bytes_read] = '\0';

SIGBUS is imminent.

2) With this bug fixed by passing real mode of local file to calculate_file_hash(), the function save_file() still does not handle the situation because it halts on any error on symlink creation including EEXIST. Instead, it should remove old file preventing symlink creation and retry.

The patch solving the problem is attached.

Our port still has not a fix. Will you add the patch to the port until next gitup release? Or I can add it myself, if you wish.

Hello Eugene,

Thank you for appying the patch, I was waiting for a new release that already includes it.

Thank you, and sorry for my delay.
