- Affected Functions
Affected version of this crate, which is a required dependency in com-impl,
provides a faulty implementation of the
QueryInterface implementation must call
IUnknown::AddRef before returning the pointer,
as describe in this documentation:
As it is not incrementing the refcount as expected, the following calls to
will cause WMI to drop reference to the interface, and can lead to invalid reference.
This is documented in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/learnwin32/managing-the-lifetime-of-an-object#reference-counting
There is no simple workaround, as you can't know how many time QueryInterface will be called.
The only way to quick fix this is to use the macro expanded version of the code and modify
the QueryInterface method to add the AddRef call yourself.
The issue was corrected in commit
