KERNEL_MODE_HEAP_CORRUPTION Parameters

Parameter Description
1

Type of corruption detected- see list below

2 Address of the heap that reported the corruption
3 Address at which the corruption was detected
4 Reserved

Parameter 1 - Type of heap corruption

0x3 : A corrupt entry header was detected.

0x4 : Multiple corrupt entry headers were detected.

0x5 : A corrupt entry header in a large allocation was detected.

0x6 : A corruption was detected with features consistent with a buffer overrun.

0x7 : A corruption was detected with features consistent with a buffer underrun.

0x8 : A free block was passed to an operation that is only valid for busy blocks.

0x9 : An invalid argument was specified for the current operation.

0xA : An invalid allocation type was detected.

0xB : A corruption was detected with features consistent with a use-after-free error.

0xC : The wrong heap was specified for the current operation.

0xD : A corrupt free list was detected.

0xE : The heap detected list corruption in a list other than the free list.

0xF : A free block was passed to an operation that is only valid for busy blocks.

0x10 : The heap detected invalid internal state during the current operation. This is usually the result of a buffer overflow.

0x11 : The heap detected invalid internal state during the current operation. This is usually the result of a buffer overflow.

0x12 : The heap detected invalid internal state during the current operation. This is usually the result of a buffer overflow.

0x13 : The heap API was passed a NULL heap handle. Look at the call stack and to determine why a bad handle was supplied to the heap.

0x14 : The requested heap allocation is larger then the current allocation limit.

0x15 : In the process of performing a commit request, it was determined that the request would exceed the current commit limit.

0x16 : In the process of checking the size of the given VA Manager allocation, it was determined that the query was invalid.

Resolution

The !analyze debug extension displays information about the bug check and can be helpful in determining the root cause.

The !heap extension displays heap usage information, controls breakpoints in the heap manager, detects leaked heap blocks, searches for heap blocks, or displays page heap information.
