[issue24038] Missing cleanup in list.sort() with key function

2015-04-23 Thread Christian Heimes

New submission from Christian Heimes:

One error path in list.sort() doesn't do proper cleanup. It neither sets an 
exception nor resets the internal pointers to its former values. In case of 
failed malloc() it leaves the list object in an invalid state.

[issue24025] str(bytes_obj) should raise an error

2015-04-23 Thread Antoine Pitrou

Antoine Pitrou added the comment:

 I'm not sure what the transitional period refers to, though.

The Python 2 - Python 3 migration.

 It's 8 years later now and doesn't look like str(bytes_object) will
go away a source of subtle bugs anytime soon

str(bytes_object) is perfectly reasonable when logging stuff, for example.

Recommend closing.

[issue10733] plistlib rejects strings containing control characters

2015-04-23 Thread Behdad Esfahbod

Behdad Esfahbod added the comment:

 Replacing all control characters by entities before trying to parse the Plist 
 XML would likely be the best way forward. 

That wouldn't work.  Control characters are disallowed in XML's character set, 
so they are invalid even if input as entities.

Unfortunately this causes a lot of trouble for clients [0], because it means 
that XML cannot represent the full Unicode repertoire.  I'm curious about 
alternates.  Perhaps the expat module can be extended to allow recovering from 
this if the client chooses to...

[issue20182] Derby #13: Convert 50 sites to Argument Clinic across 5 files

2015-04-23 Thread Tal Einat

Tal Einat added the comment:

I'm working on a new version of Georg's patch which applies to the current 
default branch.

I'm having trouble with AC output going into a separate file, since this 
requires a lot of things to be declared before the #include of the .c.h file. 
Should I move all of those definitions to the top of the file, even if they are 
currently spread all over it? Should I just add forward declarations? And if 
the latter, how do I forward-declare a struct typedef?

[issue23974] random.randrange() biased output

2015-04-23 Thread Christopher Gurnee

Christopher Gurnee added the comment:

 If you have to care about security, you shouldn't use the random module
 at all. random.SystemRandom() merely uses a CPRNG as entropy source. But
 It also manipulates numbers in ways that may or may not be safe.

I must respectfully disagree with this. The current docs say:

 Use os.urandom() or SystemRandom if you require a cryptographically
 secure pseudo-random number generator.

That's a pretty strong statement, and IMO it would lead most to believe that 
SystemRandom along with *all* of its member functions is safe to use for 
cryptographic purposes[1] (assuming of course that os.urandom() is also a safe 
CSPRNG).

As a compromise, perhaps SystemRandom could provide its own randrange() with 
the #9025 fix, while keeping random.randrange() unmodified to preserve the 
implied same-sequence rule.


[1] I don't mean to imply that this bias bug necessarily is a cryptographic 
safety issue--it seems unlikely to me that it is one, however not being a 
cryptographer myself, I'd rather not draw any conclusions either way, and 
instead I'd prefer to err on the side of safety.

[issue24037] Argument Clinic: add the boolint converter

2015-04-23 Thread Serhiy Storchaka

Serhiy Storchaka added the comment:

I consider this as transitional style, for simpler converting to Argument 
Clinic without changing the behaviour. In future it can be replaced with bool.

But the bool converter has a downside. It is harder to extend it. We can't add 
a support of say a tuple, or callable, or string, or ternary logic value 
without potential breaking some code. I propose first convert all semantic 
boolean ints to the boolint converter, and then, after fundamental analysis, 
replace boolint with bool if there is no any sense to extend concrete parameter.

[issue14376] sys.exit documents argument as integer but actually requires subtype of int

Alexander Belopolsky added the comment:

I am -1 on the patch.  (int)PyLong_AsLong(value) can silently convert non-zero 
error code to zero.  

I would leave 2.7 as is and limit allowable values to a range supported by 
the platform.

Note that ANSI C standard only specifies two values: EXIT_SUCCESS and 
EXIT_FAILURE, that may be passed to exit().

[issue24037] Argument Clinic: add the boolint converter

2015-04-23 Thread Larry Hastings

Larry Hastings added the comment:

I think this is silly.

Python has a well-understood concept of truth:
https://docs.python.org/3/library/stdtypes.html#truth-value-testing

I assert that the reason people used the i format unit for what are really 
boolean values is because a) the p format unit wasn't added until very 
recently, and b) they were lazy and it was easy to copy-and-paste from other 
code.

Rather than perpetuate these misguided hacks, when converting code to Argument 
Clinic we should convert them to properly support truth as defined in Python.

[issue24044] NULL pointer dereference in listsort() with key function

2015-04-23 Thread Benjamin Peterson

New submission from Benjamin Peterson:

Found by Christian Heimes:

Coverity has found a flaw in Objects/listobject.c:listsort() that
eventually leads to a NULL pointer dereference. Because NULL pointer
dereferences can lead to exploits or DoS vulnerabilities I'm reporting
the error on PSRT first. The error is on a code path that can be
triggered by a remote attacker, although not that easily. All Python 3
versions are affected, Python 2.7 looks save.

The problematic code line is
https://hg.python.org/cpython/file/bc1a178b3bc8/Objects/listobject.c#l19
65
. The code fails to restore self-ob_item to saved_ob_item when
PyMem_MALLOC() fails. Subsequent access to the same list object will
dereference self-ob_item (which is still NULL) and cause a segfault.

A remote attack might be able to trigger the segfault with a large
data set. All it takes is an application that sorts this large data
set with list.sort() and a custom key function. When Python runs out
of memory just in the right spot ... CRASH.

Additionally there is another bug, too. list.sort() doesn't set an
exception when PyMem_MALLOC() fails. A fix for both issues is simple
and straight forward:

The bug reported in msg225529 has been fixed, but there's another one a few 
lines up https://hg.python.org/cpython/file/bd656916586f/PC/launcher.c#l265 as 
there's only one % but two parameters.  Although IIRC we'd get away with this 
the way C works, shouldn't we fix it anyway?

[issue14376] sys.exit documents argument as integer but actually requires subtype of int

2015-04-23 Thread Alexander Belopolsky

Alexander Belopolsky added the comment:

The fix makes the problem worse.

Why would anyone want to pass a long integer to exit?

I bet the user who discovered this problem had something like 0L or 1L coming 
from a lazily written C extension.

[issue24036] GB2312 codec is using a wrong covert table

2015-04-23 Thread Ma Lin

Ma Lin added the comment:

Today, I investigated these popular programming languages, all are the latest 
version.

iconv-1.14  wrong version
php-5.6.8   wrong version (php is using iconv)
ActivePerl-5.20.2wrong version
GoLang-1.4.2 no GB2312, only has GBK/GB18030 
(golang.org/x/text/encoding)
Java 1.7.0_79-b15  wrong version (java.nio.charset)
.Net 2013   rignt version

It seems Python should stay at the wrong version.
Very sorry for waste your time.

Appendix A:
/* The right version's table should be:
 *
 *  gb2312 gbk
 * A1A4U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT  U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT
 * A1AAU+2014 EM DASH   U+2014 EM DASH
 * A844 undefinedU+2015 HORIZONTAL BAR
 */
 
Appendix B:
Advice for final user:
1, Use GBK as much as possible.
2, Be careful when you do interactive operation between GB2312 and GBK/GB18030.

[issue20182] Derby #13: Convert 50 sites to Argument Clinic across 5 files

2015-04-23 Thread Tal Einat

Tal Einat added the comment:

Here's a new version of Georg's patch which applies to the current default 
branch. On my OSX 10.8, CPython compiles fine and all tests pass, though 
test_devpoll and test_epoll were skipped.

I haven't made additional changes, so there is still AC-related work to be done 
here. For example, there are legacy converters used throughout the code, which 
should be replaced.

Changes I had to make to get this working:

1)
Updated the class declarations in selectmodule.c with the additional parameters.

2)
The doc-string for signal.sigwaitinfo was changed since Georg made his patch, 
and its first line was now too long. I shortened the first line from:

Wait synchronously for a signal until one of the signals in *sigset* is 
delivered.

to:

Wait synchronously until one of the signals in *sigset* is delivered.

3)
Converted the new sys.is_finalizing function.

4)
Reverted the signal.set_wakeup_fd function, since it has since been changed, 
and now depending on #ifdef MS_WINDOWS it interprets the argument as either 'O' 
or 'i'. I'm not sure what to do with this one, so I reverted it back to not use 
AC for now.

5)
I haven't converted the new signal.default_int_handler function, since it seems 
to accept any number of arguments, and ignores them. Is there a way to do this 
with AC?

6)
Moved the definitions of object structs and PyTypeObject types to the top of 
selectmodule.c, so that they are defined when Modules/clinic/selectmodule.c.h 
is imported.

[issue24035] When Caps Locked, Shift + alpha-character still displayed as uppercase

eryksun added the comment:

Are you using pyreadline? It's commonly used with IPython. Pyreadline hooks 
PyOS_ReadlineFunctionPointer to provide readline functionality in the REPL. 
Since it accesses the console input via ReadConsoleInputW events instead of 
using ReadConsoleW, it wouldn't surprise me if it's mishandling the keyboard

[issue6006] ffi.c compile failures on AIX 5.3 with xlc

2015-04-23 Thread aixtools

aixtools added the comment:

Although this is closed - it is not (yet) resolved, really.

ctypes does not compile on AIX 5.3, or AIX 6.1.

Applying the patch posted (https://bugs.python.org/file17098/pyffi.patch) does 
get rid of most of the problems. However, to completely fix it I also copied 
as follows:

cp  -rp ../sourceforge/libffi/libffi-3.2.1/src/powerpc 
./Python-2.7.8/Modules/_ctypes/libffi/src/powerpc
make clean
make

There are still other issues - BUT - with this ctypes completes as a module of 
python.

[issue14376] sys.exit documents argument as integer but actually requires subtype of int

2015-04-23 Thread Ryan Gonzalez

 The fix makes the problem worse.

 Why would anyone want to pass a long integer to exit?

 I bet the user who discovered this problem had something like 0L or 1L
 coming from a lazily written C extension.

Or the person is using a Python code generator that makes everything a long
for portability reasons! Hy does this.

int and long are supposed to be indistinguishable. Quote by Guido from the
time when I figured out the re module's group function doesn't take longs:

...but any place where an int is accepted but a long is not, is a bug. The
language has been on a long trip to making the two types interchangeable
and this seems one of the last remnants.

Notice the word *interchangeable*.

Also, I find that the current behavior is even more confusing.

[issue24040] plistlib assumes dict_type is descendent of dict

2015-04-23 Thread Behdad Esfahbod

Behdad Esfahbod added the comment:

The items on the stack are created in two ways: [], and self._dict_type().

Currently the code assumes that self._dict_type() returns an object that passes 
isinstance(..., type({})).  I suggested the following two ways to improve this 
check:

  - Replace with: isinstance(..., self._dict_type)

  - Replace with: not isinstance(..., type([]))

Feel free to close.  I reported because I saw room for improvement.  I don't 
/need/ the change myself.

Thanks.

[issue14376] sys.exit documents argument as integer but actually requires subtype of int

2015-04-23 Thread Alexander Belopolsky

Alexander Belopolsky added the comment:

Passing anything other than one of the os.EX_* constants to sys.exit() is a bad 
idea.  In most cases you can get away with 0 and ±1.  Anything beyond 8 bit 
signed range is a gamble.  Passing a computed integer value is even more 
problematic.  With the current behavior, you at least get some diagnostic when 
a computed long finds its way to sys.axit().  With the proposed patch these 
errors will pass silently.

[issue24045] Behavior of large returncodes (sys.exit(nn))

2015-04-23 Thread Ethan Furman

New submission from Ethan Furman:

Not sure if this is a bug, or just One of Those Things:

sys.exit(large_value) can wrap around if the value is too large, but this is 
O/S dependent.

linux (ubuntu 14.04)

  -- import sys
  -- sys.exit(10)
   echo %errorlevel%

Perhaps a minor doc update that talks about return codes and why they might not 
be exactly what was given to Python?

[issue23863] Fix EINTR Socket Module issues in 2.7

2015-04-23 Thread Gregory P. Smith

Gregory P. Smith added the comment:

diverging discussion: Go re-read the documentation on os.times().  It is 
plural, it isn't just CPU time.  (on POSIX os.times()[4] is likely to be the 
system uptime in seconds as a float... it cannot be changed like the absolute 
clock can, it is a relative monotonic clock).

Hey @berker.peksag, I've added a new patch in response to your review!

 You should create the patch with hg diff --git to preserve moving. And then 
 apply it with hg import, not the patch command. Unfortunately Rietveld 
 don't like patches in git format.

Ick, I'm guessing it's okay to just use plain old hg diff then, if Rietveld 
doesn't like the patches in git format.

[issue24019] str/unicode encoding kwarg causes exceptions

2015-04-23 Thread Mahmoud Hashemi

Mahmoud Hashemi added the comment:

I would urge you all take a stronger look at usability, rather than parroting 
the current state of the design and docs. Python gained renown over the years 
for its ability to stay flexible while maturing. Focusing on purity and 
ignoring the needs of practical programmers is exactly how PEP #461 ended up 
coming into play so late.

The inflexible arguments of str makes a common task, turning data into text, an 
order of magnitude harder than it needs to be.

Tim Golden added the comment:

Perhaps unsurprisingly, I can't reproduce this on Python 2.7.9 32-bit running 
on Win7 Home Premium. 

Python doesn't handle CapsLock/Shift interaction directly: it just gets what it 
gets from the underlying OS or framework. So I'm at a loss to know what might 
cause the effect you're seeing in so particular a way as to affect one version 
of Python in one i/o framework but not another.

Can you reproduce the situation on a different machine?

[issue23863] Fix EINTR Socket Module issues in 2.7

2015-04-23 Thread STINNER Victor

STINNER Victor added the comment:

 On POSIX systems using os.times()[4] rather than an absolute time.time(),

This is just wrong. os.times() doesn't use seconds, but an CPU time which is 
unrelated. socket.settimeout() uses seconds.

By the way, as I wrote before: using the system clock here may introduce bugs 
when the system clock goes forward to backward, but Python 2.7 doesn't have a 
monotonic clock :-( That's another reason why I didn't want to fix Python 2.7 
or 3.4.


 (For UDP it might be a valid thing to do but it still has an odd smell to it)

I'm concerned by backward compatibility. Trivial changes was made in Python 2.7 
and then came back as regressions because it broke several applications. See 
recent discussions on this topic on python-dev. Handling EINTR and recompute 
the timeout is not a trivial changes, some applications rely heavily on the 
current behaviour of sockets. Network servers using Twisted, eventlet and other 
libraries.

When we say threads, also think about greenthreads which are used in eventlet 
to handle sockets.


 Some things in 2.7 related to EINTR have already been fixed in the past few 
 years such as data loss in readline() and IIRC writelines().  Correctness 
 isn't a feature.

readline()/writelines() don't have a timeout, so it was easier to handle EINTR 
there.


 Do you consider it an API change to prevent an error that nobody relies on or 
 even expects (as PEP 475 notes) and virtually no code is written to properly 
 handle when it _does_ happen?

For your information, some people already contacted me because their 
application behaves differently on Python 3.5 (with the PEP 475). Well, it was 
easy to modify their code to not rely on EINTR, but it means that Applications 
relying on the fact that system calls are interrupted with InterruptedError 
will hang  exists in the wild.

While it's acceptable to change such thing in Python 3.5, a new major version, 
I asked if it's acceptable for a minor version.

By the way, Python 3.5 is not released yet, so we can expect more feedback on 
PEP 475 changes when Python 3.5 will be released (other regressions in 
applications?).


 Please don't WONTFIX this issue, I intend to get safe fixes in.

I suggest WONTFIX for Python 2.7, this issue is *already* fixed in Python 3.5. 
Come on, in 2015 it's time to upgrade to Python 3!

[issue23967] Make inspect.signature expression evaluation more powerful

2015-04-23 Thread Larry Hastings

Larry Hastings added the comment:

It's only used for signatures in builtins.  Any possible security hole here is 
uninteresting because the evil hacker already got to run arbitrary C code in 
the module init.

Because it's only used for signatures in builtins, we shouldn't encounter a 
function with a mutable default value like {} or [] which gets mutated later.  
Builtins don't have those.

In case you're wondering about the trusted parameter, that was suggested by 
Nick Coghlan at the PyCon sprints.  He's thinking that other callers may use 
_signature_fromstr() in the future, and he wanted the API to make it clear that 
future uses may be on non-trustworthy sources.

And, finally, consider that the original version already calls eval(). 
Admittedly it uses eval() in a way that should be much harder to exploit.  But 
it's not an enormous difference between the two calls.

I don't really think we need to post to python-dev about this.

[issue23967] Make inspect.signature expression evaluation more powerful

2015-04-23 Thread Serhiy Storchaka

Serhiy Storchaka added the comment:

Using complex expressions is deceitful. In Python functions the default value 
is evaluated only once, at function creation time, but inspect.signature will 
evaluate it every time. For example foo(x={}) and foo(x=dict()) means the same 
in function declaration, but different in signature.

It could also affect security, because allow arbitrary code execution at the 
place where it was not allowed before.

I think this issue should be discussed on Python-Dev. I'm not sure that it is 
pythonic.

[issue24036] GB2312 codec is using a wrong covert table

2015-04-23 Thread Ma Lin

New submission from Ma Lin:

While I was trying to optimize GB2312/GBK/GB18030-2000 codecs (they are three 
encodings that widely used in China), I found there is a bug.

The three encodings, their relation should be: GB2312 ⊂ GBK ⊂ GB18030-2000.
However, in Python's implement: GB2312 ⊄ GBK ⊂ GB18030-2000.
GBK should be backward compatible with GB2312, but in Python's implement, it's 
not.


I digged into, I found the Python's GB2312 codec is using a wrong convert table.
In this file /Modules/cjkcodecs/_codecs_cn.c , there is a comment block, I 
paste it here: 

/* GBK and GB2312 map differently in few code points that are listed below:
 *
 *  gb2312  gbk
 * A1A4 U+30FB KATAKANA MIDDLE DOT  U+00B7 MIDDLE DOT
 * A1AA U+2015 HORIZONTAL BAR   U+2014 EM DASH
 * A844 undefined   U+2015 HORIZONTAL BAR
 */
 
 In fact the second column (GB2312 column) is wrong, this column should be 
deleted.
 
 The four involved unicode codepoints are:
 U+30FB  ・ KATAKANA MIDDLE DOT
 U+00B7  ·  MIDDLE DOT
 U+2015  ―  HORIZONTAL BAR
 U+2014  —  EM DASH

So, GB2312 codec decodes b'0xA1, 0xA4' to U+30FB.
U+30FB is a Japanese symbol, but looks quite similar to U+00B7.

I searched GB2312 Unicode Table with Google, there are right verson and wrong 
version on the Internet, unfortunately we are using the wrong verson.

libiconv-1.14 is also using the wrong version.


Hold an example of bad behavior. 

Using GBK encoder, encode U+30FB to bytes, UnicodeEncodeError exception 
occurred, becase U+30FB is not in GBK.

In Simplified Chinese version of Microsoft Windows, console's default encoding 
is GBK[1].
If using GB2312 decoder to decode b'0xA1, 0xA4', then print U+30FB to console, 
UnicodeEncodeError raised.
Since DASH is a common character, this bug is annoying.


If we fix this, I don't know how many disasters will happen.
However, if we don't fix this, it's a bug.

I already made a patch, but I think we need a discussion, should we fix this?

---
Annotate:
[1] In fact console's default encoding is cp936, cp936 almost same as GBK, but 
not entirely same. Using GBK in here is not a problem.

[issue24037] Argument Clinic: add the boolint converter

2015-04-23 Thread Serhiy Storchaka

New submission from Serhiy Storchaka:

The 'i' format unit is often used for semantically boolean values. When the 
parameter has a default value, in Argument clinic you should specify it twice, 
as Python and C values:

closefd: int(c_default=1) = True

or

keepends: int(py_default=False) = 0

Proposed patch adds the boolint converter which makes a conversion for you.

closefd: boolint = True
keepends: boolint = False

[issue23974] random.randrange() biased output

2015-04-23 Thread Christian Heimes

Christian Heimes added the comment:

IMO it's not a security issue at all. If you have to care about security, you 
shouldn't use the random module at all. random.SystemRandom() merely uses a 
CPRNG as entropy source. But It also manipulates numbers in ways that may or 
may not be safe.

Only os.getrandom() returns unmodified and unbiased random numbers -- iff the 
operating system provides a proper CPRNG.

[issue24040] plistlib assumes dict_type is descendent of dict

2015-04-23 Thread Ned Deily

Ned Deily added the comment:

The documentation does not explicitly state whether or not dict_type values 
have to be instances / subclasses of dict.  Can you give a code example, 
preferably something that could be added to Lib/test/test_plistlib.py, of a use 
case for something that is not a subclass of dict?   Some possible courses of 
action here: (1) Document that dict_type must be an instance or subclass of 
dict; (2) Change plistlib as you suggest to allow non-subclasses of dict; (3) 
Change plistlib to test for a subclass of collections.abc.MutableMapping; (4) 
other?

[issue24047] str.startswith and str.endswith should accept multiple arguments.

2015-04-23 Thread Elizabeth Myers

New submission from Elizabeth Myers:

str.startswith and str.endswith should accept multiple arguments when passing 
in strings. This makes it easier to check if the first character of a string is 
one of a given option, versus this awkward construction:

 f = 'abc'
 'test'.startswith(tuple(f))
False

With my proposal, this could be shortened to 'test'.startswith(*f) for easy 
testing.

This also makes it easier to check if a string begins with one of any 
combination of matches.

[issue23227] Generator's finally block not run if close() called before first iteration

2015-04-23 Thread Stephen Drake

Stephen Drake added the comment:

Ok, I can accept that.  I think my mistake was to assume that because a 
generator has a close() method, I could treat it as a lightweight wrapper for 
another closeable object.

But it's better to regard a generator function that wraps an iterable as 
something more akin to map() or filter(), and use a class if it's necessary to 
wrap a file such that close() is passed through.

I happened to take a fresh look at this just the other day and it also occurred 
to me that the kind of composition I was trying to do can work if it's 
generators all the way down:

def open_lines(name, mode='rt', buffering=-1):
with open(name, mode, buffering) as f:
for line in f:
yield line

def logged_lines(f):
try:
for line in f:
logging.warning(line.strip())
yield line
finally:
f.close()

lines = open_lines('yyy', 'r')
if verbose:
lines = logged_lines(lines)
try:
for line in lines:
print(line)
finally:
lines.close()

So a generator can transparently wrap a plain iterable or another generator, 
but not closeable objects in general.  There's nothing really wrong with that, 
so I'm happy for this issue to be closed as invalid.

[issue24046] Incomplete build on AIX

2015-04-23 Thread aixtools

New submission from aixtools:

Actually, I have been building and using my builds of Python, when needed for 
./configure requirements for a long time. In short, it is quite nice that make 
completes even when there are missing and/or failed modules.

I have just resolved the problem with ctypes not building (see 
https://bugs.python.org/issue6006) and that got me started to research others.

Failed to build these modules:
_elementtree   _sqlite3   _ssl
bz2pyexpat


While there are several - I am looking first at ssl.

My first attempt comes up with some failed defines - probably because the 
latest openssl provided by IBM is openssl-1.0.0 and openssl-1.0.1 is needed.

Rather than wait for that to happen I decided to experiment with LibreSSL. If 
you are not familiar with LibreSSL - I shall be quick - openbsd (who also 
maintains openssh) has been cutting out insecure and/or superfluous code.

One of the more insecure (because it can be a predictable source of enthropy) 
is RAND_egd() - so it is unavoidable that this occurs:

ld: 0711-317 ERROR: Undefined symbol: .RAND_egd

After patching _ssl.c to this:
--- _ssl.c.orig 2014-06-30 02:05:42 +

LibreSSL:

+return NULL;
+#endif
 }
 
 PyDoc_STRVAR(PySSL_RAND_egd_doc,

The end result is:
Failed to build these modules:
_elementtree   _sqlite3   bz2 
pyexpat 

In short, you can get ahead of the curve by depreciating/removing 
PySSL_RAND_egd() because any code that uses it may be receiving predictable 
input and thereafter everything may be predictable.

If you do not believe openbsd (or me) - just read the code. It calls anything 
configured (handy when /dev/urandom was hard to find anno 1999) but these days 
a backdoor waiting to be opened.

p.s. As I get time I shall continue with the other modules that do not build - 
just let me know if you prefer that I continue posting in this issue, or make 
new one(s) for each module as I find a solution.
