Description Roland McGrath 2005-06-09 00:39:26 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #159888 +++

Integer overflow in libelf 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.
