#62 Errors found by static analysis of source code (Coverity)

Tomas Hozza


I'm maintainer of the openobex package in Fedora. By scanning the OpenOBEX v1.5 source with Coverity v6.5.0 we discovered several Bugs and some of them are serious resource leaks. I would like to ask you to fix those bugs. I'm including the Coverity scan log with found issues and proposed patches for serious ones.

    Is it possible to re-run your script against latest Git repository (at gitorious.org/openobex)? Then I can integrate those patches for version 1.7.

    And sorry for the long delay before responding. Using the mailing list is usually much faster...

    I modified the patch descriptions and adapted some of the patches to match latest git. Some failed, though.

    Thank you for your response and for applying patches. I can for sure rescan your latest git master branch. I scanned version 1.5 because this is what we ship in Fedora right now. The reason is there are some ABI incompatibilities between 1.5 and 1.6. Furthermore current and latest version of OBEXftp is pretty old and incompatible with the latest openOBEX library version.

    I will let you know when I finish the scan and send an email to openobex-users mailing list.
