Description John Helmert III gentoo-dev Security 2020-08-18 15:55:39 UTC

LuaJIT through 2.1.0-beta3 has an out-of-bounds read in lj_err_run in lj_err.c.

Looks like a pair of patches fix this, according to the issue:

Maintainer, please apply these patches or advise if they are not sufficient.

patches require some backport work, will apply them asap
