Describe the bug

During fuzzing with beaconfuzz, I found this TypeError crash. I suppose that bcrypto library throw this because the enr library provide invalid data.

Expected behavior

Enr should detect and throw an Error.

Steps to Reproduce


var discv5 = require("@chainsafe/discv5");

buf = "enr:-IS4QJ2d11eu6dC7E7LoXeLMgMP3kom1u3SE8esFSWvaHoo0dP1jg8O3-nx9ht-EO3CmG7L6OkHcMmoIh00IYWB92QABgmlkgnY0gmlwhH8AAAGJc2d11eu6dCsxoQIB_c-jQMOXsbjWkbN-kj99H57gfId5pfb4wa1qxwV4CIN1ZHCCIyk".toString()



$ npm i @chainsafe/discv5

$ node crash_TypeError_pub_key_buffer_enr_lodestar.js
      throw e;
