Summary
fieldpath's Paved.SetValue allows growing arrays up to arbitrary sizes in crossplane-runtime
Details

Summary

Fuzz testing on crossplane/crossplane, by Ada Logics and sponsored by the CNCF, identified input to a function in the fieldpath package that can cause an out of memory panic. Applications that use the Paved type's SetValue method with user provided input without proper validation might use excessive amounts of memory and cause an out of memory panic.

Details

In the fieldpath package, the SetValue method of the Paved type sets a value on the inner object according to the provided path, without validating it first. This allows setting values in slices at any specific index and the code will grow the target array up to the required size. The index is currently capped at max uint32 (4294967295) given how indexes are parsed, but that is still an unnecessarily large value.

Workaround

Users can parse and validate the path before passing it to the SetValue method of the Paved type, constraining the index size as deemed appropriate.
