Comment 1 Douglas Bagnall 2019-07-07 22:57:53 UTC
to reproduce, in an addc testenv:

  $ python3 -c'from samba.dcerpc.dnsserver import dnsserver; dnsserver("addc")'
  Segmentation fault

This is probably not very serious, but I am restricting access to it because I need to stop looking for a while.

a gdb traceback

The reason I am not sure, is this traceback goes deeper than most of the python binding issues I am looking at, and I am not certain there is only a client side path to it.

the pseudo-fuzzer that found this and other segfaults

This patch adds a test that throws arbitrary combinations off arguments at our python bindings, and looks for segfaults.

I have patches for all the problems it has found, except this one.
