Security Vulnerabilities

heapless: Use-after-free when cloning a partially consumed `Vec` iterator

RUSTSEC-2020-0145

The IntoIter Clone implementation clones the whole underlying Vec. If the iterator is partially consumed the consumed items will be copied, thus creating a use-after-free access.

A proof of concept is available in the original bug report.

smallvec: Buffer overflow in SmallVec::insert_many

RUSTSEC-2021-0003

A bug in the SmallVec::insert_many method caused it to allocate a buffer that was smaller than needed. It then wrote past the end of the buffer, causing a buffer overflow and memory corruption on the heap.

This bug was only triggered if the iterator passed to insert_many yielded more items than the lower bound returned from its size_hint method.

The flaw was corrected in smallvec 0.6.14 and 1.6.1, by ensuring that additional space is always reserved for each item inserted. The fix also simplified the implementation of insert_many to use less unsafe code, so it is easier to verify its correctness.

Thank you to Yechan Bae (@Qwaz) and the Rust group at Georgia Tech’s SSLab for finding and reporting this bug.
