[Filebeat : v7.9.3] Invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference

Filebeat version: 7.9.3

I met some issue about "invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference" which caused a panic. But i cannot figure out why that happened. Below is the stack of the panic.

panic: runtime error: invalid memory address or nil pointer dereference
[signal SIGSEGV: segmentation violation code=0x1 addr=0x0 pc=0x402b74]

could you check if it's reproducible with a newer version of filebeat?

The point is it happens occasionally. Not very often, maybe once a few weeks.
Because the problem happened in our production environment, i cannot update to a newer version of filebeat immediately.

The key code is here:

From the code i don't know under what circumstance the panic could happen
