There is an Assertion in ‘context_p->next_scanner_info_p->type == SCANNER_TYPE_FUNCTION’ failed at parser_parse_function_arguments in /js/js-parser.c of JerryScript commit a6ab5e9.

Weakness

The product contains an assert() or similar statement that can be triggered by an attacker, which leads to an application exit or other behavior that is more severe than necessary.

Affected Software

Name Vendor Start Version End Version
Jerryscript Jerryscript - -

Extended Description

While assertion is good for catching logic errors and reducing the chances of reaching more serious vulnerability conditions, it can still lead to a denial of service. For example, if a server handles multiple simultaneous connections, and an assert() occurs in one single connection that causes all other connections to be dropped, this is a reachable assertion that leads to a denial of service.
