Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-12544) Portability Flaw: Locale Dependent Comparison
Date Thu, 25 Aug 2016 17:41:20 GMT
Eduardo Aguinaga created CASSANDRA-12544:
--------------------------------------------

             Summary: Portability Flaw: Locale Dependent Comparison
                 Key: CASSANDRA-12544
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CASSANDRA-12544
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Eduardo Aguinaga


Overview:
In May through June of 2016 a static analysis was performed on version 3.0.5 of the Cassandra
source code. The analysis included an automated analysis using HP Fortify v4.21 SCA and a
manual analysis utilizing SciTools Understand v4. The results of that analysis includes the
issue below.

Issue:
In the file LegacySchemaMigrator.java on line 286 there is a portability problem with the
call to toLowerCase() because it has different locales which may lead to unexpected output.
This may also circumvent custom validation routines.

{code:java}
LegacySchemaMigrator.java, lines 286-289:
286 boolean isSuper = "super".equals(tableRow.getString("type").toLowerCase());
287 boolean isDense = tableRow.has("is_dense")
288                 ? tableRow.getBoolean("is_dense")
289                 : calculateIsDense(rawComparator, columnRows);
{code}
