[Lynx-dev] SIGSEGV in scan_cookie_sublist

I just got one of these:

「A Fatal error has occurred in Lynx Ver. 2.8.8dev.15-MirOS-0AB2.1

Please notify your system administrator to confirm a bug, and
if confirmed, to notify the lynx-dev list.  Bug reports should
have concise descriptions of the command and/or URL which causes
the problem, the operating system name with version number, the
TCPIP implementation, and any other relevant information.

Do NOT mail the core file if one was generated.

Lynx now exiting with signal:  11

Abort trap (core dumped)」

Obviously the core dump file is of not much use, since Lynx
insists on installing its own SIGSEGV handler to produce said
message, but by manually inspecting the stack beyond the frame
of the FatalProblem function I found the last address in the
code segment belonged to scan_cookie_sublist+80:

Dump of assembler code for function scan_cookie_sublist:

0x1c076fe4 <scan_cookie_sublist+84>:    je     0x1c0772d0 

The call in scan_cookie_sublist+60 appears to be sprintf from:

(gdb) list scan_cookie_sublist
713                                      char *path,
714                                      int port,
715                                      HTList *sublist,
716                                      char *header,
717                                      int secure)
718     {
719         HTList *hl;
720         cookie *co;
721         time_t now = time(NULL);
722         char crlftab[8];
724         sprintf(crlftab, "%c%c%c", CR, LF, '\t');
725         for (hl = sublist; hl != NULL; hl = hl->next) {
726             co = (cookie *) hl->object;
728             if (co == NULL) {
729                 continue;
730             }
732             /* speed-up host_matches() and limit trace output */

Then, scan_cookie_sublist+71 is the “hl != NULL” comparison
from the for, and the faulting instruction at +80 is the
dereference “hl->object” (since the “object” member of the
HTList is at offset 0).

This basically means that it’s possible, during normal Lynx
operation, for “sublist” to contain a faulty but non-NULL hl

Due to the signal handler, I cannot inspect the context
at that point to indicate the precise value. But you might
want to take this as a heads-up for investigation.

[DJBDNS Zone] TTL 86400 – <Natureshadow> kann man da auch 1d schreiben?
<mirabilos> nö, außerdem kann ein Deutscher oder ein Japaner mit 1d
    ja erstmal nix anfangen, oder könntest du 1日 im zone file lesen?
<Natureshadow> das heißt für mich: ein Regal, das u.U. schiefstehen könnte
