I'm not familiar with the codebase, but it seems that several may have security implications: 2: stack overflow (this is the Lua stack? so... heap overflow?) 3: integer overflow 4: integer overflow 6: stack overflow (this is the Lua stack? so... heap overflow?) 8: memory writing? 9: memory reading 10: CPU DoS I haven't had a chance to examine it closely yet. Has anyone looked at these changes? -Kees  http://www.lua.org/bugs.html -- Kees Cook Ubuntu Security Team
