Subject [jira] [Created] (COMPRESS-355) Parsing PAX headers fails with NegativeArraySizeException
Date Wed, 18 May 2016 20:48:13 GMT
Jeremy Gustie created COMPRESS-355:

             Summary: Parsing PAX headers fails with NegativeArraySizeException
                 Key: COMPRESS-355
             Project: Commons Compress
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Archivers
    Affects Versions: 1.11
            Reporter: Jeremy Gustie

The {{TarArchiveInputStream.parsePaxHeaders}} method fails with a {{NegativeArraySizeException}}
when there is an empty line at the end of the headers.

The inner loop starts reading the length, but it gets a newline (10) and ends up subtracting
'0' (48) from it; the result is a negative length that blows up an attempt to allocate the
{{rest}} array.

I would say that a check to see if {{ch}} is less the '0' and break the loop if it is.

I used {{npm pack aws-sdk@2.2.16}} to generate a tarball with this issue.
