Greetings Porters,

I have compiled bleadperl with the afl-gcc compiler using:

./Configure -Dusedevel -Dprefix='/usr/local/perl-afl' -Dcc='ccache afl-gcc' -Uuselongdouble -Duse64bitall -Doptimize=-g -Uversiononly -Uman1dir -Uman3dir -Dusequadmath -des
AFL_HARDEN=1 make && make test

And then fuzzed the resulting binary using:

AFL_NO_VAR_CHECK=1 afl-fuzz -i in -o out bin/perl @@

After reducing testcases using `afl-tmin` and performing additional minimization by hand, I have located the following testcase that triggers a segfault in the perl interpreter. The testcase is the file below. On normal builds and debug builds, this segfaults.

dcollins@nightshade64:~/perl$ ./perl -Ilib -We 'use lib sub{eval"use WHATEVER"};use WHATEVER'
Deep recursion on anonymous subroutine at (eval 99) line 1.
Segmentation fault

This appears to be a stack overflow bug caused by infinite recursion. Here is the iterating series of stack frames:

Valgrind confirms:

==39283== Stack overflow in thread #1: can't grow stack to 0xffe801000
==39283==
==39283== Process terminating with default action of signal 11 (SIGSEGV)
==39283==  Access not within mapped region at address 0xFFE801F18
==39283== Stack overflow in thread #1: can't grow stack to 0xffe801000
==39283==    at 0x474CA8: S_pad_findlex (pad.c:1115)
==39283==  If you believe this happened as a result of a stack
==39283==  overflow in your program's main thread (unlikely but
==39283==  possible), you can try to increase the size of the
==39283==  main thread stack using the --main-stacksize= flag.
==39283==  The main thread stack size used in this run was 8388608.
==39283== Stack overflow in thread #1: can't grow stack to 0xffe801000


Bisect has been decidedly unhelpful, this bug has persisted since at least 5.12.0
