While fuzzing Perl v5.23.2 (v5.23.1-27-g5cce15f), I found the attached script which causes a segfault in Perl_pad_free at pad.c​:1820.

Can't modify reference to eval "string" in list assignment at test01 line 1, near "};"
Unmatched right curly bracket at test01 line 1, at end of line
syntax error at test01 line 1, near "efasasasg}"
Unrecognized character \x10; marked by <-- HERE after asasg};ef<-- HERE near column 92 at test01 line 1.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

I tried this with​:
  ./Configure -des -Dcc=afl-gcc -Doptimize='-g -O2' -DDEBUGGING -Dusedevel
.. and quite a few other configurations, using perl @​ 5cce15f, and was unable
to reproduce the crash with any variant.

This is with afl-cc 1.47b and gcc (Ubuntu 4.8.2-19ubuntu1) 4.8.2. I also
tried with Ubuntu clang version 3.4-1ubuntu3.

From @geeknik

The only other differences is that I'm using GCC 4.9.2 and AFL 1.83b. To be honest, the test case was rather weird in the fact that I couldn't get afl-tmin to minimize it or even recognize that it was crashing, but I captured it with Valgrind and GDB. Not sure what else I can provide, guess we can put this on hold and see if I can get it to pop again?

Well *I* can reproduce it on darwin.

Maybe the last argument is helping.

And that’s with v5.25.4-21-g51068c1. I reduced it by hand to​:

\eval=""^i{};f{}A{};e{}a{};}

It doesn’t crash for me with -e.

It was the poisson that helped. (I smelt something fishy.)

It turns out that the larger the value of $^H the more likely it is to crash​:

BEGIN{$^H=-1}\eval=time

because the hints were being used as a pad offset, as explained in 2b6a5bf, which fixes the problem.
