Bug Information
Severity: Important
Broken in: 0.85
Fixed in: (no value)

This file (bt.mp3, a truncated mp3 from eMusic) crashes Audio::Scan with a segfault on Perl 5.8.* (doesn't do it in Perl 5.10). All eMusic files will segfault Audio::Scan on Perl 5.8 because of this problem. The problem is that in id3.c, _id3_parse_v2_frame_data(), this bit of code: if ( tmp == end ) { // Convert raw number to genre string av_push( genres, newSVpv( _id3_genre_name((char *)sptr), 0 ) ); will pass NULL/0 as the first arg to newSVpv, which according to the XS docs, will then have a strlen applied to it, causing a segfault. The best cure is probably to fix it a little above this test: // v2.4 handles multiple genres using null char separators (or $00 $00 in UTF-16), // this is handled by _id3_get_utf8_string read += _id3_get_utf8_string(id3, &value, size - read, encoding); if (value != NULL && SvPOK(value)) { sptr = SvPVX(value); by adding " && SvPVX(value) != 0" to the test. This prevents a bogus (null) TCON (genre) tag from being created in eMusic mp3 files.
