Subject: Heap overflow / invalid read in Libtasn1 before 4.5 (TFPA 005/2015)

https://blog.fuzzing-project.org/9-Heap-overflow-invalid-read-in-Libtasn1-TFPA-0052015.html

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.

Sample malformed certificate exposing heap overflow (test with
