6.4.3 Text Library Security Concerns

String representation requires memory. Executed programs (or evaluated expressions) may ruin very quickly the memory management strategies of the application when generating strings (imagine concatenating the same string and setting the very concatenated string with the value of concatenation and then repeating for some time).

Applications using the text library would limit memory allocation or risk memory exhaustion.

With memory allocation limited the text library does not present significant security challenges.
