#4284 closed Bug (fixed)

SIGSEGV via webfrontend or transmission-remote

Reported by: jerwied Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.32
Component: Transmission Version: 2.31
Severity: Major Keywords:


When accessing transmission via the web-frontend, the application crashes with a SIGSEGV inside of libevent, more precise in malloc. Seems like an internal memory segment is overwritten due to too small buffers in earlier allocations.

Investigation shows that there possibly is another memory problem (NULL-pointer access).

Normal operation without remote access mostly works.

TRansmission-Daemon (withut gtk, from SVN), configured with:

./configure --disable-gtk

Daemon is running on: Linux border 2.6.38-gentoo-r1 #9 SMP Thu May 26 00:47:57 CEST 2011 i686 Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.20GHz GenuineIntel? GNU/Linux

Transmission-Remote is version 3.24

Attached patch fixes the above problems, transmission-daemon is running stable and can be accessed from two computers simultaneously.
