An issue was discovered in Binaryen 1.38.32. Two visitors in ir/ExpressionManipulator.cpp can lead to a NULL pointer dereference in wasm::LocalSet::finalize in wasm/wasm.cpp. A crafted input can cause segmentation faults, leading to denial-of-service, as demonstrated by wasm2js.

Weakness

A NULL pointer dereference occurs when the application dereferences a pointer that it expects to be valid, but is NULL, typically causing a crash or exit.
