The fmtstr function in crypto/bio/b_print.c in OpenSSL 1.0.1 before
1.0.1s and 1.0.2 before 1.0.2g improperly calculates string lengths,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (overflow
and out-of-bounds read) or possibly have unspecified other impact via
a long string, as demonstrated by a large amount of ASN.1 data, a
different vulnerability than CVE-2016-2842.
