Bug #81587 MultipleIterator Segmentation fault w/ SimpleXMLElement attached
Submitted: 2021-11-03 14:01 UTC Modified: 2021-11-04 09:28 UTC
From: hanskrentel at yahoo dot de Assigned:
Status: Closed Package: SPL related
PHP Version: 8.0.12 OS: Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Description:
------------
Since PHP 8.0 SimpleXMLElement is an Iterator and it is
possibe to attach it to a MultipleIterator (TypeError earlier).

Attached to a MultipleIterator and iterating the MultipleIterator makes
PHP exit code 139 (interrupted by signal 11: SIGSEGV - Segmentation fault)

Starting with PHP 8.1rc1 this is not an issue any longer.

Test script:
---------------
$mi = new MultipleIterator();
$mi->attachIterator(new SimpleXMLElement('<r/>'));
$mi->rewind();

Expected result:
----------------
Process exited with code 0

Actual result:
--------------
Output for 8.0.0 - 8.0.12: Process exited with code 139.
https://3v4l.org/DhLc0

A workaround is available: Wrapping the SimpleXMLElement inside an
IteratorIterator prevents the segmentation fault:

$mi = new MultipleIterator();
$mi->attachIterator(new IteratorIterator(new SimpleXMLElement('<r/>')));
$mi->rewind();

The fix in PHP 8.1 here is somewhat accidental: When class declarations were migrated to stubs, the declaration order was changed: Now we generally always implement Iterator before assigning get_iterator. This means that the code in zend_implement_iterator that avoids initializing iterator_funcs_ptr for custom get_iterator will no longer trigger in practice, and iterator_funcs_ptr will always be allocated. To avoid confusion and subtle dependency on class initialization order, the special handling there should probably get dropped and iterator_funcs_ptr be initialized unconditionally.

As far as MultipleIterator is concerned, I'd say the proper fix here would be to go through the get_iterator interface rather than manually calling Iterator methods. But as MultipleIterator is based on SplObjectStorage in a weird way, we can't easily do this. So we should just check whether iterator_funcs_ptr is null  for PHP 8.0.
