Integer Divide by Zero leading to UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (0x7f)


Integer Divide by Zero leading to UNEXPECTED_KERNEL_MODE_TRAP (0x7f)

It is easily recognizable in process crash dumps by the processor instruction that caused this exception type (DIV or IDIV):

1b2713c4 f775e4 div dword ptr [ebp-0×1c]

EXCEPTION_RECORD: ffffffff — (.exr ffffffffffffffff)
ExceptionAddress: 1b2713c4 (DLL!FindHighestID+0x00000278)
ExceptionCode: c0000094 (Integer divide-by-zero)
ExceptionFlags: 00000000
NumberParameters: 0


004263d8 f7fe idiv eax,esi

EXCEPTION_RECORD: ffffffff — (.exr 0xffffffffffffffff)
ExceptionAddress: 004263d8 (Application+0x000263d8)
ExceptionCode: c0000094 (Integer divide-by-zero)
ExceptionFlags: 00000000

ERROR_CODE: (NTSTATUS) 0xc0000094 – {EXCEPTION} Integer division by zero.

This is a kernel mode counterpart of Divide by Zero pattern in user mode. It manifests under different bugchecks, for example:

1: kd> !analyze -v


This means a trap occurred in kernel mode, and it’s a trap of a kind that the kernel isn’t allowed to have/catch (bound trap) or that is always instant death (double fault). The first number in the bugcheck params is the number of the trap (8 = double fault, etc) Consult an Intel x86 family manual to learn more about what these traps are. Here is a *portion* of those codes:
If kv shows a taskGate
use .tss on the part before the colon, then kv.
Else if kv shows a trapframe
use .trap on that value
.trap on the appropriate frame will show where the trap was taken
(on x86, this will be the ebp that goes with the procedure KiTrap)
kb will then show the corrected stack.
