Crash Data


(1 file)

This has the same signature as bug 1722566, but the root cause is different. This crash happened in the call to GetPdbInfo() in SharedLibraryInfo::GetInfoForSelf because the target module was unloaded. The unloaded module is always msvp9dec_store.dll.

Here are examples:

This problem is the same as bug 1702086, which was fixed by making sure we "lock" a target module by incrementing its refcount or loading it as data. Upon further investigation, it turned out that msvp9dec_store.dll could be unloaded even though we locked the module.

First, msvp9dec_store.dll is loaded into RDD or GPU via CanCreateMFTDecoder with CLSID_WebmMfVpxDec. We delegate a task to create an instance into the COM MTA thread where we create an instance of MFTDecoder and release it.

If the instance of MFTDecoder is destroyed at the end of the task, it posts a task to unload msvp9dec_store.dll to the work queue like this.

And later, the worker thread unloads the module like this.

The problem is mfplat.dll posts the unload task several times while it loads the module only once. It's implemented in mfplat!CMFInprocDllManager::LoadDllInternal which calls LoadLibraryExW only when GetModuleHandleW returned null. As a result, even if we increment the module's refcount, the extra unload task could unload the module depending on timing.

Severity: -- → S2

When mfplat.dll loads msvp9dec_store.dll, it posts a task
to unload the module to the work queue even if msvp9dec_store.dll
is already loaded and mfplat.dll skips LoadLibrary. Therefore,
we cannot safely lock msvp9dec_store.dll by loading it as data.

The proposed fix is to skip processing the module.

ESR Uplift Approval Request

  • If this is not a sec:{high,crit} bug, please state case for ESR consideration: This signature was a top crasher of RDD process. There were multiple root causes of this signature. I think this patch addresses the main root cause.
  • User impact if declined: When RDD process loads Microsoft's built-in video decoder msvp9dec_store.dll, the process may suddenly crash even if no third-party application is installed. This is a timing issue.
  • Fix Landed on Version: 92
  • Risk to taking this patch: Low
  • Why is the change risky/not risky? (and alternatives if risky): This patch skips msvp9dec_store.dll because we cannot keep it loaded. This is the same approach as we did for Nvidia driver (bug 1607574).
  • String or UUID changes made by this patch: None
