Bug #44388 exif_read_data() causes segfault on a certain image
Submitted: 2008-03-10 06:03 UTC Modified: 2008-03-12 17:33 UTC
From: jon at tgpsolutions dot com Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: Reproducible crash
PHP Version: 5.2.5 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:

Description:
------------
PHP segfaults trying to read the EXIF data for this image:

http://jon.tgpsolutions.com/exif_read_data-bug.jpg

I hit this bug initially on PHP 5.2.1 (the version in Ubuntu 7.04), was able to reproduce on PHP 5.2.3-1ubuntu6.3 (the version in Ubuntu 7.10), and was able to reproduce again on PHP 5.2.5 compiled from source.  

#43630 looks similar to this bug, but it was closed as Bogus with the explaination "This simply tells you that your EXIF information is broken" - maybe the submitter wasn't clear that PHP segfaults after displaying the warnings?  The sample image isn't available anymore, so I can't be sure if PHP segfaults or not in their case.

Reproduce code:
---------------
test.php:
<?php $exif = exif_read_data('exif_read_data-bug.jpg'); ?>

Expected result:
----------------
$exif contains EXIF data for the image.

Actual result:
--------------
