Subject[PATCH] X.509: Fix the buffer overflow in the utility function for OID string
Date
From: Takashi Iwai <tiwai@suse.de>

The sprint_oid() utility function doesn't properly check the buffer
size that it causes that the warning in vsnprintf() be triggered.
For example on v4.1 kernel:

[ 49.612536] ------------[ cut here ]------------
[ 49.612543] WARNING: CPU: 0 PID: 2357 at lib/vsprintf.c:1867 vsnprintf+0x5a7/0x5c0()
...

We can trigger this issue by injecting maliciously crafted x509 cert
in DER format. Just using hex editor to change the length of OID to
over the length of the SEQUENCE container. For example:

0:d=0 hl=4 l= 980 cons: SEQUENCE
4:d=1 hl=4 l= 700 cons: SEQUENCE
8:d=2 hl=2 l= 3 cons: cont [ 0 ]
10:d=3 hl=2 l= 1 prim: INTEGER :02
13:d=2 hl=2 l= 9 prim: INTEGER :9B47FAF791E7D1E3
24:d=2 hl=2 l= 13 cons: SEQUENCE
26:d=3 hl=2 l= 9 prim: OBJECT :sha256WithRSAEncryption
37:d=3 hl=2 l= 0 prim: NULL
39:d=2 hl=2 l= 121 cons: SEQUENCE
41:d=3 hl=2 l= 22 cons: SET
43:d=4 hl=2 l= 20 cons: SEQUENCE <=== the SEQ length is 20
45:d=5 hl=2 l= 3 prim: OBJECT :organizationName
<=== the original length is 3, change the length of OID to over the length of SEQUENCE

Pawel Wieczorkiewicz reported this problem and Takashi Iwai provided
patch to fix it by checking the bufsize in sprint_oid().
