CVE-2017-9754

Priority
Description
The process_otr function in bfd/versados.c in the Binary File Descriptor
(BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.28, does not
validate a certain offset, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have
unspecified other impact via a crafted binary file, as demonstrated by
mishandling of this file during "objdump -D" execution.
