CVE-2019-12972

Priority
Description
An issue was discovered in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka
libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.32. There is a heap-based buffer
over-read in _bfd_doprnt in bfd.c because elf_object_p in elfcode.h
mishandles an e_shstrndx section of type SHT_GROUP by omitting a trailing
'\0' character.
