Description

The parse_die function in dwarf1.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 (integer overflow and application crash) via an ELF file with corrupt dwarf1 debug information, as demonstrated by nm.
