Description Andrej Nemec 2017-11-29 09:29:38 UTC
The coff_slurp_line_table function in coffcode.h in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.29.1, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid memory access and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted PE file.
