Detail

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Binutils, the worst of which may allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service condition.

Background

The GNU Binutils are a collection of tools to create, modify and analyse binary files. Many of the files use BFD, the Binary File Descriptor library, to do low-level manipulation.

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Binutils. Please review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

Impact

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to compile/execute a specially crafted ELF, object, PE, or binary file, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition or have other unspecified impacts.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Binutils users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-devel/binutils-2.30-r2"
