Comment 3 Riccardo Schirone 2021-05-06 14:52:12 UTC

There is no available reproducer or proof of concept for this issue, nor it was ever proven the out-of-bounds write can happen in practice. Indeed in the original report this issue was considered one that might not be triggered and for this reason its Impact is Moderate.
