Security Vulnerabilities

yaml-rust: Uncontrolled recursion leads to abort in deserialization


Affected versions of this crate did not prevent deep recursion while deserializing data structures.

This allows an attacker to make a YAML file with deeply nested structures that causes an abort while deserializing it.

The flaw was corrected by checking the recursion depth.

Note: clap 2.33 is not affected by this because it uses yaml-rust in a way that doesn't trigger the vulnerability. More specifically:

  1. The input to the YAML parser is always trusted - is included at compile time via include_str!.

  2. The nesting level is never deep enough to trigger the overflow in practice (at most 5).
