I think there's a "t" missing:

610-                try:
611:                    _boostrap_external._validate_hash_pyc(
612-                        data, source_hash, fullname, exc_details)
613-                except ImportError:
614-                    return None
615-    else:
616-        source_mtime, source_size = \
617-            _get_mtime_and_size_of_source(self, fullpath)
619-        if source_mtime:

Good catch!  Would you like to submit a pull request to fix it?  Ideally such a PR should also include a test to exercise this code.

Is it possible to scan stdlib to find similar bugs?

A possible test case to trigger this code path based on testUncheckedHashBasedPyc would be as below. check_hash_based_pycs can be patched to be "always" so that the hash is validated using _bootstrap_external._validate_hash_pyc. The difference between "state = old" for pyc and "state = new" in py would ensure the hashes are different to raise ImportError expected and the test picks up state = new as the updated source code. Without fixing the typo trying to make hash validation would throw NameError.

@unittest.mock.patch('_imp.check_hash_based_pycs', 'always')
def test_checked_hash_based_change_pyc(self):
    source = b"state = 'old'"
    source_hash = importlib.util.source_hash(source)
    bytecode = importlib._bootstrap_external._code_to_hash_pyc(
        compile(source, "???", "exec"),
    files = {TESTMOD + ".py": (NOW, "state = 'new'"),
             TESTMOD + ".pyc": (NOW - 20, bytecode)}
    def check(mod):
        self.assertEqual(mod.state, 'new')
    self.doTest(None, files, TESTMOD, call=check)

Also since the fix involves modifying it would also require running "make regen-importlib && make -s" for changes to ensure the updated regen code is used.

Ma Lin, Running pylint/flake8 could possibly detect it but needs to be manually checked. issue36948 was a similar report I filed in the past using flake8 regarding NameError.

pylint - Lib/ E0602: Undefined variable '_boostrap_external' (undefined-variable)
flake8 - Lib/ F821 undefined name '_boostrap_external'

Wince you has virtually written a patch, do you mind to create a PR Karthikeyan?
msg358326 - (view) Author: Karthikeyan Singaravelan (xtreak) * (Python committer) Date: 2019-12-13 10:47
Sure Serhiy, I will create one.
