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 an assert fail in debug buids of the perl interpreter. The testcase is the file below. On normal builds, this runs normally. On debug builds, this returns an assert fail.


dcollins@nightshade64:~/perldebug$ ./perl -Ilib -e '{tell$0;i${^LAST_FH}}'
perl: mg.c:964: Perl_magic_get: Assertion `((((PL_last_in_gv)->sv_flags & (0x00004000|0x00008000)) == 0x00008000) && (((svtype)((PL_last_in_gv)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVGV || ((svtype)((PL_last_in_gv)->sv_flags & 0xff)) == SVt_PVLV))' failed.
Aborted



Debugging tool output is below. A git bisect was performed and reported the following, which is presumably the commit where the assert was initially added.

8561ea1dd1a3357825e765e1df4f883e53f89a9d is the first bad commit

     ${^LAST_FH}

     This was brought up in ticket #96672.

     This variable gives access to the last-read filehandle that Perl uses
     when it appends ", <STDIN> line 1" to a warning or error message.
