#3583 closed defect (fixed)

Server crashes when running particular ST_GeomFromJSON command

Reported by: bmmpxf Owned by: pramsey
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 2.1.9
Component: postgis Version: 2.1.x
Keywords: Cc:


Hi. In pgAdmin (or psql), running the following command:

Select ST_GeomFromGeoJSON('{"type":"MultiPolygon?", "coordinates":[139.10030364990232,35.16777444430609],5842.4224490305424?}');

The Postgres service immediately shuts down. I've never seen this sudden behavior before.

Log file shows:

LOG:  server process (PID 9576) was terminated by exception 0xC0000005
DETAIL:  Failed process was running: select ST_GeomFromGeoJSON('{"type":"MultiPolygon", "coordinates":[[[139.10030364990232,35.16777444430609],5842.4224490305424]]}'); 
HINT:  See C include file "ntstatus.h" for a description of the hexadecimal value.

According to Microsoft, exception 0xC0000005 means "STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION": "The instruction at 0x%08lx referenced memory at 0x%08lx. The memory could not be %s."


Tested on PostGIS 2.1.7 and Postgres 9.3 on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2012.

Any ideas?

Better formatting:

Select ST_GeomFromGeoJSON('{"type":"MultiPolygon", "coordinates":[[[139.10030364990232,35.16777444430609],5842.4224490305424]]}');

Huh, doesn't crash on 2.2, but my 2.1 it does. Usually it's a consistent crash back to 2.0 since the code's pretty in sync. Will debug and get back to you.

Looks like it was mis-fixed during a prior cleanup. All the other versions got the right code, but 2.1 got a bad copy/paste.

Fixed at r14970 in 2.1 branch. Putting this example into a ticket regress in trunk just for giggles.

Thanks pramsey! Glad it was an easy fix.

Would the fix for this issue fix a similar crash situation, but with an empty JSON string?

select ST_GeomFromGeoJSON('{"type":"MultiPolygon", "coordinates":[[]]}');

Or is this a different issue? The behavior is the same.

Works for me, so yes, the patch fixed your new example as well.

This seems to have broken the 2.1 bot builds (I see red flags everywhere).

On debbie I'm seeing:

I suspect we may be stripping things out like COPY lines, since they are inconsistent depending on PostgreSQL version, so might just require taking that out.

Yeah, that got in there from me running ./run_test --expect to generate a new file... maybe the generator needs a little polish

Great. Is there a reason we still have this ticket open?

comment:10 Changed 16 months ago by bmmpxf

I reopened the ticket just to verify that the second case was being addressed. It sounds like it is, so I have no objection to the ticket being closed if no one else does. Thanks for the help all.
