Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-9593) User data check is inconsistent with python
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2016 08:34:58 GMT

GitHub user marcaurele opened a pull request:

    CLOUDSTACK-9593: userdata: enforce data is a multiple of 4 characters

    Python base64 requires that the string is a multiple of 4 characters but
    the Apache codec does not. RFC says is not mandatory but the data should
    not fail the VR script (vmdata.py).

> The user data is validated through the Apache commons codec library, but this library
does not check that the length is a multiple of 4 characters. The RFC does not require it
either. But the python script in the virtual router that loads the user data does check for
the possible padding presence, requiring the string to be a multiple of 4 characters.
> {code:python}
> >>> import base64
> >>> base64.b64decode('foo')
> Traceback (most recent call last):
>   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
>   File "/usr/local/Cellar/python/2.7.12/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/base64.py",
line 78, in b64decode
>     raise TypeError(msg)
> TypeError: Incorrect padding
> >>> base64.b64decode('foo=')
> '~\x8a'
> {code}
> Currently since the java check is less restrictive, the user data gets saved into the
database but the VR script crashes when it receives this VM user data. On a single VM it is
not really a problem. The critical issue is when a VR is restarted. The invalid pythonic base64
string makes the vmdata.py script crashed, resulting in a VR not starting at all.
