[Bug 242049] New: DirectFB-0.9.25-42 : array subscript is above array bounds

Summary: DirectFB-0.9.25-42 : array subscript is above array
Product: openSUSE 10.3
Version: unspecified
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: dcb314@xxxxxxxxxxx

I just tried to compile package DirectFB-0.9.25-42
with the GNU C compiler version 4.3 snapshot 20070202.

The compiler said

serialmouse.c:443: warning: array subscript is above array bounds

The source code is

if (FD_ISSET (fd, &set) && (readlen = read (fd, buf, 8) > 0)) {
while (readlen--) {
if (buf[8-readlen] == 0x4D)

so readlen is in the range [1..8] after the first if, and it is in the
range [ 0..7] after the while statement.

This then means that the index into the buf array is [8..1], but

char buf[8];

This looks like an off by one error. Suggest code rework.
