Ok, thanks.

Thanks for the patch, could you check if we need to backport this fix to older releases as well?

As far as I've seen, maybe_script_execute was introduced with commit 
"posix: New Linux posix_spawn{p} implementation" 
(https://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commit;h=9ff72da471a509a8c19791efe469f47fa6977410)
=> first release was glibc 2.24.

Should it be backported to all versions: glibc 2.24 ... 2.28?

Bye

Ideally yes, this is quite simple patch so I thin backport should not require extra work.

Hi,

I've cherry picked the commit "Fix segfault in maybe_script_execute." 
(https://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commit;h=28669f86f6780a18daca264f32d66b1428c9c6f1) 
and it is now available on glibc release branches 2.24 ... 2.28.

Bye
Stefan

Patch

commit 03a8c686eab8e12b4c478e7606963db6a72f6f0e
Author: Stefan Liebler <stli@linux.ibm.com>
Date:   Thu Sep 6 12:27:38 2018 +0200

    Fix segfault in maybe_script_execute.
    
    If glibc is built with gcc 8 and -march=z900,
    the testcase posix/tst-spawn4-compat crashes with a segfault.
    
    In function maybe_script_execute, the new_argv array is dynamically
    initialized on stack with (argc + 1) elements.
    The function wants to add _PATH_BSHELL as the first argument
    and writes out of bounds of new_argv.
    There is an off-by-one because maybe_script_execute fails to count
    the terminating NULL when sizing new_argv.
    
    ChangeLog:
    
            * sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/spawni.c (maybe_script_execute):
            Increment size of new_argv by one.
