Description

I found a code that causes an anomaly.

$ uname -a
Darwin 20208671n 22.6.0 Darwin Kernel Version 22.6.0: Wed Oct  4 21:26:55 PDT 2023; root:xnu-8796.141.3.701.17~4/RELEASE_ARM64_T6020 arm64

$ ruby -v
ruby 3.4.0dev (2024-02-22T06:43:46Z master e1c684e471) [arm64-darwin22]

$ ruby -e '100.times { "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa".__send__(:initialize, capacity: -1) }'
ruby(13817,0x1f22b2080) malloc: Heap corruption detected, free list is damaged at 0x600000e27bc0
*** Incorrect guard value: 29830901955328
ruby(13817,0x1f22b2080) malloc: *** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug
[1]    13817 abort      ruby -e

$ ruby -e '100.times { "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa".__send__(:initialize, capacity: 0) }'
# never return ....

My research indicates the following conditions.

  • String must be at least 64 characters long
  • Call #initialize with capacity: 0 or less
  • Repeat this several times.

Embedded string.

  • Call #initialize with capacity: 0 or less

Small but positive capacity also crashes.

Overwriting heap when initializing with smaller capacity.
