Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 17:22:39 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159894 +++

Integer overflow in the BFD library for binutils allows attackers to
execute arbitrary code via a crafted object file that specifies a large number
of section headers, leading to a heap-based buffer overflow.
Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-06-08 17:23:08 EDT
I do not believe this issue has been fixed in FC4 yet.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2005-06-08 17:34:24 EDT
It has been:
* Wed May 25 2005 Jakub Jelinek <jakub@redhat.com>

- bfd and readelf robustification (CAN-2005-1704, #158680)

There is still the crash of objdump -r resp. objdump -dr when an object
contains invalid relocation values I fixed this week, but I don't think
we need a security errata for each such a bug.
Comment 3 Jakub Jelinek 2005-06-29 16:54:55 EDT
Updates for FC3 and FC4 released today.
