[analyzer] Improves the logic of GenericTaintChecker identifying stdin.

Authored by MTC on Oct 21 2017, 6:10 AM.



GenericTaintChecker can't recognize stdin in some cases. The reason is that if (PtrTy->getPointeeType() == C.getASTContext().getFILEType() does not hold when stdin is encountered.

My platform is ubuntu16.04 64bit, gcc 5.4.0, glibc 2.23. The definition of stdin is as follows:

/* The opaque type of streams.  This is the definition used elsewhere.  */
typedef struct _IO_FILE FILE;


/* The opaque type of streams.  This is the definition used elsewhere.  */
typedef struct _IO_FILE __FILE;   


/* Standard streams.  */
extern struct _IO_FILE *stdin;      /* Standard input stream.  */
extern struct _IO_FILE *stdout;     /* Standard output stream.  */
extern struct _IO_FILE *stderr;     /* Standard error output stream.  */

The type of stdin is as follows AST:

ElaboratedType 0xc911170'struct _IO_FILE'sugar
`-RecordType 0xc911150'struct _IO_FILE'
 `-CXXRecord 0xc923ff0'_IO_FILE'

C.getASTContext().GetFILEType() is as follows AST:

TypedefType 0xc932710 'FILE' sugar
|-Typedef 0xc9111c0 'FILE'
`-ElaboratedType 0xc911170 'struct _IO_FILE' sugar
  `-RecordType 0xc911150 'struct _IO_FILE'
      `-CXXRecord 0xc923ff0 '_IO_FILE'

So I think it's better to use getCanonicalType().

Fix looks good. Could you add a test case? The analyzer tests define their own stdin and types, so you could add an alternate definition or change the existing one so that it goes through a typedef.

  1. taint-tester.c has some tests about stdin, so I only modified the parts of stdin in Inputs/system-header-simulator.h.
  2. The C standard does not specify the implementation of FILE, so I continue to use typedef _FILE FILEto define the FILE type.

Thanks! Do you have commit access or should we commit on your behalf?

I do not have commit access and hope someone can commit it on my behalf. Thanks a lot!

Maybe we could also test both declaration variants, i.e.:

// RUN: %clang_analyze_cc1        ,debug.TaintTest %s -verify 
// RUN: %clang_analyze_cc1 -DFILE_IS_STRUCT,debug.TaintTest %s -verify

extern struct _FILE *stdin;
extern FILE *stdin;

// put tests here

Thanks for your suggestion, Noq. Yes, it's a choice.

But stdin can only have one declaration in system-header-simulator.h, extern FILE stdin or extern _FILE stdin and testing these two declaration in one test file is not compatible with system-header-simulator.h. In either form, getCanonicalType () can handle it. So I don't know whether it's reasonable to test both declaration variants at the same time?

MTC set the repository for this revision to rC Clang.

Update the taint-generic.c to test both stdin declaration variants.

@NoQ, Very sorry, I've forgotten about this patch, it has now been updated.
