Detail

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 18.10 - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in elfutils.

Software Description: - elfutils: collection of utilities to handle ELF objects

Details:

It was discovered that elfutils incorrectly handled certain malformed files. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted file, elfutils could be made to crash or consume resources, resulting in a denial of service.
