Integer overflow in the rb_ary_fill function in array.c in Ruby before
revision 17756 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a call
to the Array#fill method with a start (aka beg) argument greater than
ARY_MAX_SIZE. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for
other closely related integer overflows.
