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.

Affected packages

——————————————————————-
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
——————————————————————-
1 sys-devel/binutils 2.30-r2=20

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”
