An integer overflow found in src/tool_cb_prg.c #3456
Peng Li at Baidu X-Lab found an integer overflow in the function tool_progress_cb of src/tool_cb_prg.c, the error message is "tool_cb_prg.c:122:29: runtime error: signed integer overflow: 828 + 9223372036854775807 cannot be represented in type 'long'". Since the overflowed variable total is used in the consequent conditionals, I think it is a critical bug.
You could compile curl with undefined behavior sanitizer activated and apply "curl-ubsan -q -K id_005898" to reproduce the bug, the OS is ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, curl's version is curl 7.61.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) libcurl/7.61.1. If you need any assistance, please let me know.
int tool_progress_cb(void clientp,
struct timeval now = tvnow();
/* expected transfer size */
