Issues reported by Yongheng Chen

Phil Leblanc
Several issues have been reported this summer by Yongheng Chen and Rui
Zhong (after a fuzzing campaign).

- Could the Lua team give us a status about these issues?  (confirmed
bugs, fixed bugs, still unexplained or unfixed issues)

- Does the recent Lua 3.5.6rc address any of these?

- Does the Lua team know if the reports have stopped because Yongheng
Chen and Rui Zhong didn't find any more issues? or because they
collected enough data for their publication to come?

Thanks in advance

Phil

All bugs were confirmed; one (two?) was repeated. All have been
unsderstood and fixed in the repository. We are waiting a little more to
release 5.4.1, with all these fixes.

(I believe you mean 5.3.6rc.) Yes. All those bugs that apply to
5.3 were corrected. In fact, from that set, I guess only one
bug applied to 5.3. (Most of those bugs were related to the
new generational collector and with the new stack handling.)

No idea.

We have currently stopped testing lua because we have to focus on other stuffs. We might continue testing lua after that.

Best,
