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              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1  sys-devel/binutils          < 2.30-r2                 >= 2.30-r2 

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:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=sys-devel/binutils-2.30-r2"
