libtasn1 Heap Overflow
Posted May 1, 2015
Authored by Hanno Boeck | Site hboeck.de

Fuzzing GnuTLS, it was discovered that a malformed certificate input sample would cause a heap overflow read of 99 bytes in the DER decoding functions of Libtasn1. The heap overflow happens in the function _asn1_extract_der_octet().

While fuzzing GnuTLS I discovered a malformed certificate input sample
that would cause a heap overflow read of 99 bytes in the DER decoding
functions of Libtasn1. The heap overflow happens in the function
_asn1_extract_der_octet().

This issue was reported to the Libtasn1 developer on 16th April. A fix
was committed on 20th April and is part of the Libtasn1 4.5 release.
This issue was found with american fuzzy lop and address sanitizer.
