We have just released Go versions 1.17.2 and 1.16.9, minor point releases.
These minor releases include a security fix according to the new security policy (#44918
When invoking functions from WASM modules, built using GOARCH=wasm GOOS=js, passing very large arguments can cause portions of the module to be overwritten with data from the arguments.
If using wasm_exec.js to execute WASM modules, users will need to replace their copy (as described in https://golang.org/wiki/WebAssembly#getting-started) after rebuilding any modules.
This is issue #48797 and CVE-2021-38297. Thanks to Ben Lubar for reporting this issue.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the releases.
