CVE-2018-7570

Priority
Description
The assign_file_positions_for_non_load_sections function in elf.c in the
Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU
Binutils 2.30, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (NULL
pointer dereference and application crash) via an ELF file with a RELRO
segment that lacks a matching LOAD segment, as demonstrated by objcopy.
