Socket use after close when connecting to remote HTTPS via HTTPS proxy #8193

Socket use after close when connecting to remote HTTPS via HTTPS proxy #8193

I did this

  1. Connect to non-existent HTTPS server via HTTPS proxy tunnel.
  2. Observe the process crash

We use ProcessStrictHandleCheckPolicy which reveals socket use after close.

I expected the following

Curl returns "Received HTTP code 502 from proxy after CONNECT" and gracefully close the HTTPS tunnel.

curl/libcurl version

You didn't show the curl -V output though, so we're clueless about your TLS config.

Thanks, I see, but I'm only linking with curl lib in my project.

Running curl.exe built from this repo, top of master branch, the problem is still there. I added curl -V output to the description above.

Patch which enables strict handle check policy on Windows:

With the above policy, unpatched code crash when executed like this (with no server on port 9999):

.\curl --proxy-cacert ca.pem https://localhost:9999 -x https://localhost:8899

with my PR all is fine:

.\curl --proxy-cacert ca.pem https://localhost:9999 -x https://localhost:8899
curl: (56) Received HTTP code 502 from proxy after CONNECT

I want to A) reproduce the problem and then B) verify that the fix is fine.

It does not reproduce for me on Linux, with or without valgrind:

./src/curl -x https://localhost:8843 https://localhost:7999/ --proxy-insecure

Where is the socket use after close happening? Can you get a stack trace from your crash?

First I set a debug log on CloseHandle and I found out that we are closing the same handle in the place which I patched. When the code unwinds from there it triggers the stream_error on


Line 2006 in e7f9c90

stream_error = TRUE;

then it falls into


Line 2569 in e7f9c90

Curl_disconnect(data, conn, dead_connection);

then here


Line 753 in e7f9c90

Curl_ssl_close(data, conn, FIRSTSOCKET);

which is an interesting code. Curl_ssl_close will dereference SSL context at curl_easy_t->conn->ssl[0]->backend which has the same socket handle in it's read/write structures as curl_easy_t->conn->sock[0] which was just closed.

A blind try to fix it with

    Curl_ssl_close(data, conn, FIRSTSOCKET);

also worked but walking the code, reading comments, I made an educated guess to fix it as submitted in my PR

bagder added a commit that referenced this issue Dec 28, 2021
... and double-check in the OpenSSL shutdown that the socket is actually
still there before it is used.

Fixes #8193

Awesome, that was just the info I needed to get a full picture.
