#12238 closed Patch - Bug Fix (fixed)

Patch to address technical violation of memcpy null source address

Reported by: Gary Buhrmaster <gary.buhrmaster@…> Owned by: stuartm
Priority: trivial Milestone: 0.28
Component: MythTV - General Version: Master Head
Severity: low Keywords:
Cc: Ticket locked: no


Static analysis (scan-build) reported that memcpy could be called with a NULL source address (where length would be zero) when following specific code paths. That is technically a violation of the library function (although most known implementations would operate properly without producing a fault with a length of zero). This patch provides the appropriate check to avoid/resolve the potential issue. One less static analysis reported bug.

Visual check of the code only (the "it looks reasonable to me" check), I have no CAM devices to even consider testing with.
