json Gem for Ruby contains an overflow condition that is triggered as
user-supplied input is not properly validated when handling specially crafted
data. This may allow a remote attacker to cause a stack-based buffer
overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the
execution of arbitrary code.
