Synopsis
========

A buffer overflow in OCaml might allow remote attackers to obtain
sensitive information or crash an OCaml-based application.

Background
==========

OCaml is a high-level, strongly-typed, functional, and object-oriented
programming language from the ML family of languages.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-lang/ocaml < 4.04.0 >= 4.04.0

Description
===========

It was discovered that OCaml was vulnerable to a runtime bug that, on
64-bit platforms, causes size arguments to internal memmove calls to be
sign-extended from 32- to 64-bits before being passed to the memmove
function. This leads to arguments between 2GiB and 4GiB being
interpreted as larger than they are (specifically, a bit below 2^64),
causing a buffer overflow. Further, arguments between 4GiB and 6GiB are
interpreted as 4GiB smaller than they should be causing a possible
information leak.

Impact
======

A remote attacker, able to interact with an OCaml-based application,
could possibly obtain sensitive information or cause a Denial of
Service condition.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All OCaml users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-lang/ocam-4.04.0"

Packages which depend on OCaml may need to be recompiled. Tools such as
qdepends (included in app-portage/portage-utils) may assist in
identifying these packages:

# emerge -1 -a -v $(qdepends -CQ dev-lang/ocaml | sed 's/^/=/')
