Author: Alexander Holler Date: To: exim-dev Subject: [exim-dev] unchecked return code of malloc
being curious about the possible bug in exim, I've just done a
grep -nRsA 2 malloc *
on the source of exim-4.69 to see if the problem might happen because of
some unchecked return of malloc() which would cause a problem if the
available memory could be a problem. It revealed a few places which look
I haven't looked further because the problem might already be found, and
I don't know if exim overwrites malloc, but I would suggest to
remove/fix those few places like the one above. I know it might be
difficult to get to the point where malloc returns 0 (NULL), but fixing
those places looks to me like a good idea.
PS: I don't use exim by myself, and really just was curious, so I will
not do any further on that topic.
