CVE-2017-16832

Priority
Description
The pe_bfd_read_buildid function in peicode.h in the Binary File Descriptor
(BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.29.1, does not
validate size and offset values in the data dictionary, which allows remote
attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation violation and
application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted
PE file.
