Description Jeff Johnston 2005-10-26 17:56:42 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #171825 +++

Integer overflow in the BFD library for gdb before 6.3 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.

More information is available in the gentoo bug:
