Bug #5309: CIDR prefix calculation fails on big endian archs
CIDR prefix calculation fails on big endian archs (6.0.x backport)
While trying to build 6.0.5 on Debian's s390x port, we noticed that tests segfault in the new version (see https://ci.debian.net/data/autopkgtest/testing/s390x/s/suricata/21160408/log.gz). Tracking this down, it seems that
CIDRFromMask() returns -1 when trying to determine a network prefix length for a given netmask (e.g. 24 for 255.255.255.0). This causes
DetectAddressParseSingle() to return
NULL and hence the test to try and dereference a null pointer, causing the segfault.
I compared values passed into
CIDRFromMask() via gdb on amd64 and s390x and found that they are different:
... Test AddressTestCutIPv401 : Breakpoint 1, CIDRFromMask (netmask=16777215) at util-cidr.c:34 ...
... Test AddressTestCutIPv401 : Breakpoint 1, CIDRFromMask (netmask=4294967040) at util-cidr.c:34 ...
My patch at https://gist.github.com/satta/7406fe735d8b449a4c9af73822d2bc9a fixes the code for both architectures.
