DNS bug: duplicate call to connection_mark_for_close at connection_edge.c

Actually, I'm running, not

This occurs when tor is running and the modem connects to the ISP

In order to ensure dns requests aren't leaked, my resolv.conf is just

and named is set to forward any non-cached queries to port 9999, which tor is listening on for DNS queries.

Here's the debug output:

Mar 05 22:15:01.887 [info] evdns_server_callback(): Got a new DNS request!
Mar 05 22:15:01.887 [debug] connection_add(): new conn type Socks, socket -1, n_conns 23.

I can replicate this by running Tor with DNSPort 9999 and executing

dig @ -p9999 -t ptr

I see:

Mar 11 15:13:27.308 [warn] Malformed IP "" in address pattern; rejecting.
Mar 11 15:13:27.489 [notice] Tor has successfully opened a circuit. Looks like client functionality is working.
Mar 11 15:13:27.489 [warn] Bug: Duplicate call to connection_mark_for_close at connection_edge.c:457 (first at connection_edge.c:2015)

This looks like two separate bugs. First, apparently addresses of the form * are
not so nonexistent as Tor was assuming and therefore should probably be handled somehow. Second, the duplicate
close issue.

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by nickm

WRT the duplicate mark-for-close issue, it looks like some callers of connection_ap_handshake_attach_circuit()
are unconditionally marking the connection if the function fails. However, it looks like some functions called by
connection_ap_handshake_attach_circuit() (including connection_ap_handshake_send_resolve [and possibly others, I'm
not sure yet]) will mark the connections too.

Need to review the code a little to see which part of this is the bug. It's also possible that the checking on the
address format should happen earlier, before we make the connection at all.

comment:3 Changed 11 years ago by nickm

It looks like the address in question is a zeroconf thing. So far as I know, it would actually be _bad_ to send this
off to a remote DNS server. Tor should continue to treat addresses of this form as automatically NXDOMAIN, but it
shouldn't be quite so loud about it.

The double-mark should be fixed in 14066 and 14067.
