CVE-2017-7299

Priority
Description
The Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in
GNU Binutils 2.28, has an invalid read (of size 8) because the code to emit
relocs (bfd_elf_final_link function in bfd/elflink.c) does not check the
format of the input file before trying to read the ELF reloc section
header. The vulnerability leads to a GNU linker (ld) program crash.
