Description Andrej Nemec 2017-08-31 15:07:24 UTC
The C++ symbol demangler routine in cplus-dem.c in libiberty, as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.29, allows attackers to cause a denial of service (excessive memory allocation and application crash)
via a crafted file, as demonstrated by a call from the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd).
