[jira] Created: (CODEC-105) ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when doing multiple reads() on encoding b64InputStream

JIRA jira@apache.org
ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when doing multiple reads() on encoding b64InputStream
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: CODEC-105
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CODEC-105
             Project: Commons Codec
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4
         Environment: 64-bit Linux
            Reporter: ZAK Magnus


When encoding a sizable stream byte by byte (so, just calling Base64InputStream.read()), after 10920 successful read()s, this happens:

java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException: 2
        at org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64.encode(Base64.java:502)
        at org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64InputStream.read(Base64InputStream.java:157)
        at org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64InputStream.read(Base64InputStream.java:109)

Based on this, the necessary conditions seem to be that buffer = null and modulus = 2. Then, if a read() is done, a single-byte buffer is used, whose length is doubled by resizeBuffer(), but that still doesn't make it big enough to hold the 4 bytes written to it because modulus was just incremented to 0.

Here's some sample code:

import org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64InputStream;

public class TestReads {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Base64InputStream b64stream = new Base64InputStream(System.in, true, 0, null);
        int n = 0;
        try {
            while (b64stream.read() != -1) n++;
        } catch (Exception x) {
            System.out.println(n);
            x.printStackTrace();
        }
    }
}
