CVE-2018-6323

Priority
Description
The elf_object_p function in elfcode.h in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD)
library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.29.1, has an
unsigned integer overflow because bfd_size_type multiplication is not used.
A crafted ELF file allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
