How to fix?
electron to version 6.1.10, 7.2.2, 8.2.0 or higher.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Out-of-bounds Read. The input to
sctp_load_addresses_from_init is verified by calling
sctp_arethere_unrecognized_parameters, however there is a difference in how these functions handle parameter bounds. The function
sctp_arethere_unrecognized_parameters does not process a parameter that is partially outside of the limit of the chunk, meanwhile,
sctp_load_addresses_from_init will continue processing until a parameter that is entirely outside of the chunk occurs.
This means that the last parameter of a chunk is not always verified, which can lead to parameters with very short
plen values being processed by
sctp_load_addresses_from_init. This can lead to out-of-bounds reads whenever the
plen is subtracted from the header
