Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-5126) Add Derby test case for CVE-2010-4476 - Java Runtime Environment hangs when converting "2.2250738585072012e-308" to a binary floating-point number

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5126?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13008418#comment-13008418

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-5126:

I am not sure I understand why we need to add a test case for this to Derby. In my view, this
is a JDK error, not a Derby error.
Do we propose to make Derby refuse to run on the vulnerable JDKs? If not, I think the tests
should be able to run on such JDKs as well. A proper notice in the release notes would suffice,

> There is a known serious JVM issue with  both Sun and IBM JVM's that can cause a hang
with the following code and perhaps other cases:
> public class ReproCVE20104476 {
>     private static final String PROBLEM_NUMBER_STRING="2.2250738585072012e-308" ;
>     public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception  {
> 	    Class.forName("org.apache.derby.jdbc.EmbeddedDriver");
> 	    Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:derby:wombat;create=true");
> 	    // clean up from a previous run
> 	    Statement s = conn.createStatement();
> 	    try {
> 		s.executeUpdate("DROP TABLE T");
> 	    } catch (SQLException se) {
> 		if (!se.getSQLState().equals("42Y55"))
> 		    throw se;
> 	    }
> 	    s.executeUpdate("CREATE TABLE T (d1 VARCHAR(30))");
> 	    PreparedStatement ps = conn.prepareStatement("INSERT INTO T VALUES (?)");
> 	    ps.setString(1, PROBLEM_NUMBER_STRING);
> 	    ps.executeUpdate();
> 	    ResultSet rs = s.executeQuery("SELECT * from T");
> 	    rs.next();
> 	    double d = rs.getDouble(1);
> 	    System.out.println("double value = " + d);
>     }
> }
> The IBM announcement and fix is here:
> http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/alerts/cve-2010-4476.html
> There is  a link from that page to the Oracle announcement.
> I am not sure yet if Mac or other JVM's are affected.
> I would like to check a regression test into trunk  at some point soon, but this will
require that all people running Derby tests upgrade their JVM's, so want to set a reasonable
deadline.  Does April 15 sound reasonable?  Also are there any JVM's/platforms  that should
be excluded because there is not a fix available yet?
