CVE-2017-7302

Priority
Description
The Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in
GNU Binutils 2.28, has a swap_std_reloc_out function in bfd/aoutx.h that is
vulnerable to an invalid read (of size 4) because of missing checks for
relocs that could not be recognised. This vulnerability causes Binutils
utilities like strip to crash.
