Bug #43201 Crash on using unitialized vals and __get/__set
Submitted: 2007-11-05 18:15 UTC Modified: 2007-11-09 09:28 UTC
From: stas at zend dot com Assigned: dmitry
Status: Closed Package: Scripting Engine problem
PHP Version: 5.2CVS-2007-11-05 (CVS) OS: *
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2007-11-05 18:15 UTC] stas at zend dot com
Description:
------------
Code modifying the result of __get (erroneously) and using undefined variables crashes, apparently because of unitialized_zval being freed. 

Reproduce code:
---------------
<?php
class Foo {
	function __get($k) {
		return null;
	}
	function __set($k, $v) {
		$this->$k = $v;
	}
}

$c = new Foo();

$c->arr[0]["k"] = 1;
$c->arr[0]["k2"] = $ref;
for($cnt=0;$cnt<6;$cnt++) {
	$ref = chop($undef);	
	$c->arr[$cnt]["k2"] = $ref;
}
?>

Expected result:
----------------
No crash :)

Actual result:
--------------
On windows - crash
On Unix debug - 
php5/Zend/zend_hash.c(517) : ht=0xa533520 is being destroyed

Shorter version:

<?php
class Foo {
	function __get($k) {
		return null;
	}
}

$c = new Foo();

$c->arr[0]["k"] = 1;
$c->arr[0]["k2"] = $undef;
for($cnt=0;$cnt<6;++$cnt) {
	$c->arr[$cnt]["k2"] = chop($undef);
}
?>
