Exploitable: local, remote
Date: 2018-12-30
Bug(s): #662904
ID: 201812-11

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Rust, the worst which
may allow local attackers to execute arbitrary code.


Background

A systems programming language that runs blazingly fast, prevents
segfaults, and guarantees thread safety.


Affected Packages

Package: dev-lang/rust
Vulnerable: < 1.29.1
Unaffected: >= 1.29.1
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: dev-lang/rust-bin
Vulnerable: < 1.29.1
Unaffected: >= 1.29.1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Rust. Please review the
CVE identifiers referenced below for details.


Impact

A remote attacker able to control the value passed to Rust’s
str::repeat function could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
In addition, a local attacker could trick another user into executing
arbitrary code when using rustdoc.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Rust users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/rust-1.29.1"
   
All Rust binary users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/rust-bin-1.29.1"
