did a fresh install last night, under a new ruby setup on my desktop, started up the webui, added a dispatcher, lowered the concurrency from 20 to 5, changed the useragent, and setup a scan of a target that tends to 302/4 redirect all bad requests to the home page, scan progresses and I see mem and % results from the dispatcher, leave for some coffee, and at around 25-30% through the scan I get the following Seg Fault. This was the first app I thought to use with the new rbenv setup. the scanner IP is whitelisted in the WAF, but looks to be that I still hit one of our velocity thresholds, I see a few 500's from the server instead of 30x redirects, which tells me the WAF stepped in a few times (249 WAF denials out of the ~20k requests made). I don't think the WAF denials are the culprit, but just doing a brain dump to get a better picture.

The backtrace it a bit misleading, the issue is somewhere in Typhoeus.
The problem is that I haven't yet managed to find a way to reliably reproduce this but it looks like it only happens when Threads are involved.
I've added some synchronization code to the HTTP lib in the "feature/distributed-crawling" branch I've been working on recently and it seems to have taken care of the problem so I'll port these changes to the experimental branch as well and let you know so that you can use it.

skout23 commented Nov 9, 2012

Swank, I played around with Roundabout about 2 months back, fun stuff. Is that where your heading? Either way I will switch branches and give it a spin.

Yeah I've implemented that in Arachni and I'm now testing and bugfixing. The branch is considered unstable though.

Newer versions of Ruby seem to have fixed this problem, closing.
