Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Binutils, the worst of which may allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service condition.
|Package||sys-devel/binutils on all architectures|
|Affected versions||< 2.28.1|
|Unaffected versions||>= 2.28.1|
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.
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Binutils. Please review References for additional information.
A remote attacker, by enticing a user to compile/execute a specially crafted ELF file, PE File, or binary file, could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All Binutils users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-devel/binutils-2.28.1"
