Integer overflow in .NET Framework

Abstract
------------------------------------------------------------------------
An integer overflow exists in the
System.DirectoryServices.Protocols.Utility class of the .NET Framework.
Triggering this issue results in an overflown integer that is used to
allocate a buffer on the heap that is too small, resulting in memory
corruption. Exploiting this issues appears to be difficult.
Consequently, Microsoft has decided to not release a security bulletin.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Affected versions
------------------------------------------------------------------------
This issue affects .NET Framework version 4.5 and 4.6. Other versions
are not affected as this issue can only be triggered using large arrays
(> 2GB).

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fix
------------------------------------------------------------------------
There is currently no fix available for this issue. Microsoft will not
release a security bulletin, it may be fixed in future versions of the
.NET Framework.

[...] [we] are going to pursue this as a candidate for improvement in
future versions, [...] On x86, the feasibility of an attack is mitigated
by the maximum process memory and even on amd64, prevailing
configurations preclude this from being a feasible attack.
