Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Binutils, the worst of
which may allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service condition.


Background

The GNU Binutils are a collection of tools to create, modify and analyse
binary files. Many of the files use BFD, the Binary File Descriptor
library, to do low-level manipulation.


Affected Packages

Package: sys-devel/binutils
Vulnerable: < 2.32-r1
Unaffected: >= 2.32-r1
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Binutils. Please review
the referenced CVE identifiers for details.


Impact

A remote attacker, by enticing a user to compile/execute a specially
crafted ELF, object, PE, or binary file, could possibly cause a Denial of
Service condition or have other unspecified impacts.


Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Binutils users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
      # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-devel/binutils-2.32-r1"
