An attacker is able to cause O(n) lookup for hash tables by predicting the buckets in which interned symbols will end up, due to a partially incorrect fix for CVE-2012-6125 where the randomization factor was determined before initializing the PRNG with a seed state. This issue affects only the Scheme symbol table, not user-created hash tables. All CHICKEN releases up to and including 4.12.0 are affected. More info: http://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html/chicken-announce/2017-07/msg00000.html Cheers, Peter Bex [ CONTENT OF TYPE application/pgp-signature SKIPPED ]
