> KJ_REQUIRE(wordsPerElement * ElementCount64(elementCount) <= wordCount,

> KJ_REQUIRE(ElementCount64(size) * wordsPerElement <= wordCount,

Use CVE-2015-2310.


> 2/ Integer underflow in pointer validation

>   - https://bugs.debian.org/780567

> Discovered by Ben Laurie

> Cap'n Proto takes the philosophy that any security mistake that is
> likely to be common in naively-written application code is in fact a
> bug in Cap'n Proto

> list could claim to have up to 2^29-1 elements while only taking 8 or
> 16 bytes on the wire

> application may notice nothing wrong and proceed to iterate through
> and handle each element in the list, potentially taking a lot of time
> and resources

Use CVE-2015-2312.


> 4/ CPU usage amplification attack #2
>   - https://github.com/sandstorm-io/capnproto/blob/master/security-advisories/2015-03-05-0-c%2B%2B-addl-cpu-amplification.md
>   - https://bugs.debian.org/780568

> Discovered by David Renshaw

> The new case occurs only if the application invokes the totalSize()
> method on an object reader.

Use CVE-2015-2313.
