CVE-2017-17124

Priority
Description
The _bfd_coff_read_string_table function in coffgen.c in the Binary File
Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils
2.29.1, does not properly validate the size of the external string table,
which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (excessive
memory consumption, or heap-based buffer overflow and application crash) or
possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted COFF binary.
