I have been running Tor on tor2web mode and now it has started to crash.

It crashes after few minutes of use. Before that it works normally.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Tor version:
Tor (git-605ae665009853bd)

Further Information

The line numbers in your backtrace don't seem to be the same as the line numbers I have for I'm going to assume they're wrong, and work off the code listings.

It might help to provide the last few entries from an info-level or debug-level log.

query=0x5555568ea1f0 "oahmssjdnck7ntzx") at src/or/rendclient.c:1217
The hidden service in question is oahmssjdnck7ntzx.onion, it appears to be down.
(I've attached a stem script to fetch its descriptor, it says: stem.DescriptorUnavailable: No running hidden service at oahmssjdnck7ntzx.onion.)

Can you tell us if it's always the same hidden service causing the crash?


The calls in this backtrace were removed in by dgoulet to fix #15937, a bug where tor over-enthusiastically cancelled connections if too many requests happened for the same hidden services in a short period of time.

This bug could cause all sorts of problems for busy tor2web instances connecting to busy hidden services. I can't see any obvious issues in the code, but I'd like others to have a look at:

  • rend_client_refetch_v2_renddesc (
  • rend_client_desc_trynow
  • rend_cache_lookup_entry
  • I wouldn't bother looking in detail at rend_client_any_intro_points_usable, as it crashes on the first line that tries to use a corrupt or NULL entry.

I wonder if you've found a race condition or something?

Suggested Solutions

You could try applying that patch from #15937 and see if it fixes your issue.
You could also try running, it should work for Tor2web, but it's still a little unstable.

Another question: 605ae665009853bd isn't a version of Tor that's in our repository, as far as I know. Where did you get your Tor?

We are still waiting on more information from juha here.

The i = 32767 value is super high... There is no chance we have that amount of usable intro points so probably that entry->parsed->intro_nodes has never been cleaned or a crazy amount of nodes have been added.

  i = crypto_rand_int(smartlist_len(usable_nodes));
  intro = smartlist_get(usable_nodes, i);

Also this: intro = 0x1 is simply not possible... So I think we don't have an accurate backtrace here.
This tor version is not from the tor repository thus no way I can confirm anything... Putting this one in needs_information.

we can take this in 0.2.9 and maybe even backport, if we get a fix.

Remove "TorCoreTeam201605" keyword. The time machine is broken.
