Bug #17382


Segfault in String#inspect

Added by lionelperrin (Lionel Perrin) 11 months ago. Updated 21 days ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.7.2p137 (2020-10-01 revision 5445e04352) [x86_64-linux]



We experienced a segfault in our application. It seems that it happened right after we've upgraded from ruby 2.6 to ruby 2.7.2.
The faulting ruby code is actionpack-

info "  Parameters: #{params.inspect}" unless params.empty?

However, the problem seems to be due to string.c:10702

Here is an extract of the output from ruby (full output attached):

Thank you for the report. I think that this is the same issue as #17289 and #17362. Unfortunately, the core team has no reproducible code, so we haven't investigated the issue yet. Can you provide your code, or at least, the core dump file?
