How to fix?
smallvec to version 0.6.10 or higher.
smallvec is a "Small vector" optimization for Rust: store up to a small number of items on the stack.
Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Use After Free in SmallVec::grow(). Attempting to call
grow with a value equal to the current capacity causes it to free the existing data. This performs a double free immediately and may lead to use-after-free on subsequent accesses to the SmallVec contents. An attacker that controls the value passed to
grow may exploit this flaw to obtain memory contents or gain remote code execution.
