Bug #69100 Bus error from stream_copy_to_stream (file -> SSL stream) with invalid length

It seems that a Bus error can be generated by stream_copy_to_stream, when copying to a SSL stream if the given length exceeds the available remaining data.

I've successfully replicated the problem on a few machines, using the exact parameters below, all running Debian 7 x86-64, on both PHP 5.5 and 5.6, although it doesn't seem to occur _everywhere_.

I haven't experimented, but I suspect it may be something to do with mmap and the range check.

From main/streams/plain_wrapper.c:

		do_fstat(data, 1);
		if (range->length == 0 && range->offset > 0 && range->offset < data->sb.st_size) {
			range->length = data->sb.st_size - range->offset;
		if (range->length == 0 || range->length > data->sb.st_size) {
			range->length = data->sb.st_size;
		if (range->offset >= data->sb.st_size) {
			range->offset = data->sb.st_size;
			range->length = 0;

It doesn't look like range->length is ever checked against range->offset+data->sb.st_size, hence it's possible for php_stdiop_set_option to claim that more memory was mapped than actually was.  This can cause invalid memory errors when the buffer is read.

And for reference's sake, it seems that sending the file over HTTP is also problematic, though you won't get a crash:

Notice: stream_copy_to_stream(): send of 8192 bytes failed with errno=14 Bad address in /root/b.php on line 9

Test script:

// create an TLS stream to localhost:443 (this means you need a server listening there)
$context = stream_context_create();
stream_context_set_option($context, 'ssl', 'verify_peer', false);
$fw = stream_socket_client('tls://localhost:443', $null, $null, 5, STREAM_CLIENT_CONNECT, $context);
fwrite($fw, "POST /null.php HTTP/1.1\r\nHost: localhost\r\nContent-Length: 1073741824\r\n\r\n");

// the file './data' needs to be 8383276 bytes long, can be created via 'dd if=/dev/zero of=data count=1 bs=8383276'
$fr = fopen('./data', 'rb');

// copy
var_dump(stream_copy_to_stream($fr, $fw, 7340032));
var_dump(stream_copy_to_stream($fr, $fw, 1048576)); // causes Bus Error as it overflows the file's size

Expected result:

Actual result:

Program received signal SIGBUS, Bus error.

This looks like a pretty severe bug. I'm too lazy to do the SSL setup, but just doing appropriately sized copies between files triggers this in the form of a false return value from the stream_copy_to_stream() call -- it is our luck that the access to the out of range memory will usually happen during a syscall, so it is ends up failing "gracefully" rather than with a SIGBUS.
