Security Vulnerabilities

time: Potential segfault in the time crate



The affected functions set environment variables without synchronization. On Unix-like operating systems, this can crash in multithreaded programs. Programs may segfault due to dereferencing a dangling pointer if an environment variable is read in a different thread than the affected functions. This may occur without the user's knowledge, notably in the Rust standard library or third-party libraries.

The affected functions from time 0.2.7 through 0.2.22 are:

  • time::UtcOffset::local_offset_at
  • time::UtcOffset::try_local_offset_at
  • time::UtcOffset::current_local_offset
  • time::UtcOffset::try_current_local_offset
  • time::OffsetDateTime::now_local
  • time::OffsetDateTime::try_now_local

The affected functions in time 0.1 (all versions) are:

  • time::at_utc
  • time::at
  • time::now
  • time::tzset

Non-Unix targets (including Windows and wasm) are unaffected.


Pending a proper fix, the internal method that determines the local offset has been modified to always return None on the affected operating systems. This has the effect of returning an Err on the try_* methods and UTC on the non-try_* methods.

Users and library authors with time in their dependency tree should perform cargo update, which will pull in the updated, unaffected code.

Users of time 0.1 do not have a patch and should upgrade to an unaffected version: time 0.2.23 or greater or the 0.3 series.


A possible workaround for crates affected through the transitive dependency in chrono, is to avoid using the default oldtime feature dependency of the chrono crate by disabling its default-features and manually specifying the required features instead.



chrono = { version = "0.4", default-features = false, features = ["serde"] }
chrono = { version = "0.4.22", default-features = false, features = ["clock"] }


cargo add chrono --no-default-features -F clock


libgit2-sys: Memory corruption, denial of service, and arbitrary code execution in libgit2


The libgit2 project fixed three security issues in the 1.7.2 release. These issues are:

  • The git_revparse_single function can potentially enter an infinite loop on a well-crafted input, potentially causing a Denial of Service. This function is exposed in the git2 crate via the Repository::revparse_single method.
  • The git_index_add function may cause heap corruption and possibly lead to arbitrary code execution. This function is exposed in the git2 crate via the Index::add method.
  • The smart transport negotiation may experience an out-of-bounds read when a remote server did not advertise capabilities.

The libgit2-sys crate bundles libgit2, or optionally links to a system libgit2 library. In either case, versions of the libgit2 library less than 1.7.2 are vulnerable. The 0.16.2 release of libgit2-sys bundles the fixed version of 1.7.2, and requires a system libgit2 version of at least 1.7.2.

It is recommended that all users upgrade.
