Title: OCaml: Arbitrary code execution (GLSA 202007-48)
An integer overflow was discovered in OCaml's standard library,
possibly allowing arbitrary execution of code.
OCaml is a high-level, strongly-typed, functional, and object-oriented
programming language from the ML family of languages
Vulnerable: < 4.09.0
Unaffected: >= 4.09.0
Architectures: All supported architectures
The caml_ba_deserialize function in byterun/bigarray.c in the standard
library of OCaml has an integer overflow.
A remote attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process, or cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All OCaml users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/ocaml-4.09.0"
