Due to the missing range check, this could result in negative or too small size allocations, which would result in a crash or a buffer overrun, depending on the size. This issue affects all current releases of CHICKEN Scheme, including the latest release, 4.12.0. The official announcement was made here: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/chicken-announce/2017-03/msg00000.html Cheers, Peter Bex Download attachment "signature.asc" of type "application/pgp-signature" (474 bytes)
