Title: Binutils: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 201709-02)
Bug(s): #618006, #618514, #618516, #618520, #618826, #621130, #624524, #624702
Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Binutils, the worst of
which may allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service condition.
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.
Vulnerable: < 2.28.1
Unaffected: >= 2.28.1
Architectures: All supported architectures
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Binutils. Please review
References for additional information.
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to compile/execute a specially
crafted ELF file, PE File, or binary file, could possibly cause a Denial
of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Binutils users should upgrade to the latest version:
|# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-devel/binutils-2.28.1"
