Description Agostino Sarubbo gentoo-dev 2022-08-06 15:31:53 UTC
Dear maintainer(s),
'cargo audit' reports one or more bundled CRATES as vulnerable.
To reproduce please install dev-util/cargo-audit and run:
cargo audit --file Cargo.lock
where Cargo.lock is generated during the build of this package.

For simplicity, I'm attaching here the content of 'cargo audit' here:

      Loaded 433 security advisories (from /tmp/advisory-db)
    Scanning Cargo.lock for vulnerabilities (45 crate dependencies)
Crate:     chrono
Version:   0.4.19
Title:     Potential segfault in `localtime_r` invocations
Date:      2020-11-10
ID:        RUSTSEC-2020-0159
Solution:  Upgrade to >=0.4.20
Dependency tree:
chrono 0.4.19

error: 1 vulnerability found!

The vulnerabilities seems to have been fixed now:

Crate:     ouroboros

Seems like it was fixed in this commit, which is in 41.0.0:

Author: Paul Kehrer <>
Date:   Tue Apr 4 20:04:55 2023 +0900

    upgrade rust-asn1, which removes chrono dep (#8664)

    * use new rust-asn1 non-chrono path

    * bump asn1

    * oh yeah, remove that
