CVE-2018-6543

Priority
Description
In GNU Binutils 2.30, there's an integer overflow in the function
load_specific_debug_section() in objdump.c, which results in `malloc()`
with 0 size. A crafted ELF file allows remote attackers to cause a denial
of service (application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact.
