Bug #80653 MySQL BIGINT UNSIGNED value in prepared statement treated incorrectly
Submitted: 2021-01-21 18:47 UTC Modified: 2021-01-30 09:54 UTC
From: gman dot n at xrbr dot com Assigned: dharman (profile)
Status: Not a bug Package: MySQLi related
PHP Version: 7.4.14 OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Private report: No CVE-ID: None
 [2021-01-21 18:47 UTC] gman dot n at xrbr dot com
When using MySQLi prepared statement, everything works as expected when using only a single BIGINT UNSIGNED column by itself:

Using one column only: "... WHERE `val_hash`=?"
test value A: 8969302881072144 => result: works.
test value B: 13326067295508650029 => result: works.

The query returns the expected result in both cases. However, when adding a second column, which in my scenario is a TINYINT column, the SELECT query will work for test value A, but not yield any results for test value B. This occurs probabaly because the test value B ist a BIGINT UNSIGNED value is higher than PHP_INT_MAX.

Using two columns: "... WHERE `val_type`=? AND `val_hash`=?"
test value A: 8969302881072144 => result: works.
test value B: 13326067295508650029 => result: DOES NOT WORK.

Therefore, there must be a bug that messes up the BIGINT UNSIGNED value when higher than PHP_INT_MAX.

Test script:
Full script:

Shorted version:


$connection = new \mysqli(...);

$statement1 = $connection->prepare('SELECT `val_id`, `val_type` FROM `copy_pw_values` WHERE `val_type`=? AND `val_hash`=?');

$type3 = 3;
$hash3 = '13326067295508650029';
$statement1->bind_param('is', $type3, $hash3);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;
// Returns 0, should return 1.

$type4 = '3';
$hash4 = '13326067295508650029';
$statement1->bind_param('ss', $type4, $hash4);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;
// Returns 0, should return 1.

Expected result:

Actual result:

I can't reproduce it. I tried with PHP 7.3, 7.4.14 and 8.0. I tried on Windows and Linux. I tried it with MySQL and MariaDB. I even tried it online, but I always get the same output:


Are you sure there isn't something else in your environment that causes the wrong output?

Thanks for checking this out! Using your link, when I change to MySQL 8.0 it does no longer work. I immediately checked and I'm using MySQL 8.0.22-0ubuntu0.20.04.3 (should have added that in the beginning, sorry!).

So is it an issue with PHP or MySQL?

This issue looks very similar to one that I'm experiencing.

Here's a reproducer:

Change `int unsigned` to `int` and the query works:

The issue only occurs on MySQL 8 (not 5.x versions), and affects all PHP versions. 

Emulating prepared statements seems to be a workaround to the problem.

Thanks, I can see that there is a problem. I have been looking into the issue for the past hour and I still haven't narrowed it down, but I have some more findings I would like to keep a record of here. It looks like the only affected version is MySQL 8.0.22. I am 90% sure that the bug is on MySQL side...

What I have found out so far is:
- It affects all PHP versions
- Engine is irrelevant
- As you have noticed the type (both column and binding) of the second column impacts the result
- Only certain numbers are affected. There is a pattern, but it's unclear to me what that pattern is. The bigger the numbers get the more irregular the pattern becomes. e.g. numbers between 13326067295508630 and 13326067295508660 (00 fail, 11-success):
11	13326067295508630
00	13326067295508631
11	13326067295508632

- The type used in binding makes huge difference, regardless of what it is or which parameter it is. For example, this works fine:

$type3 = 30;
$statement1->bind_param('ss', $hash3, $type3);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;
$type4 = 30;
$statement1->bind_param('ss', $hash3, $type4);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;

but this does not

$type3 = 30;
$statement1->bind_param('si', $hash3, $type3);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;
$type4 = 30;
$statement1->bind_param('ss', $hash3, $type4);
echo $statement1->get_result()->num_rows;

This leads me to believe that the problem is on MySQL side with the way the optimizer handles type casting in prepared statements. MySQL 8.0.22 has changed the way that prepared statements are parsed and optimized. This looks like an unintentional bug. The only explanation I have for this erratic behaviour is that there is a bug in the new way that MySQL handles PS and type casting. I see no way that mysqli or mysqlnd could produce such bug. 

Therefore, I would kindly ask you to report it to Oracle ( as soon as possible.

Suggest to close. MySQL have verified a regression in 8.0.22+

Should be not a bug, then. :)
