CVE-2017-8393

Priority
Low
Description
The Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in
GNU Binutils 2.28, is vulnerable to a global buffer over-read error because
of an assumption made by code that runs for objcopy and strip, that
SHT_REL/SHR_RELA sections are always named starting with a .rel/.rela
prefix. This vulnerability causes programs that conduct an analysis of
binary programs using the libbfd library, such as objcopy and strip, to
crash.
