Summary

In the WASMI Interpreter, an Out-of-bounds Buffer Write will arise arise if the host calls or resumes a Wasm function with more parameters than the default limit (128), as it will surpass the stack value. This doesn’t affect calls from Wasm to Wasm, only from host to Wasm.

Impact

After conducting an analysis of the dependent Polkadot systems of wasmi: Pallet Contracts, Parity Signer, and Smoldot, we have found that none on those systems have been affected by the issue as they are calling host to Wasm function with a small limited amount of parameters always.

Mitigations

If you are using wasmi betwen version 0.15.0 and 0.31.0, please update it to the 0.31.1 patch release that we just published.

Workarounds

Ensure no more than 128 parameters can be pass in a call from the host to a Wasm function.
