RHSA-2005-763: binutils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the binutils packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


An updated binutils package that fixes minor security issues is now
available.

This update has been rated as having low security impact by the Red Hat
Security Response Team.

Binutils is a collection of utilities used for the creation of executable
code. A number of bugs were found in various binutils tools.

Several integer overflow bugs were found in binutils. If a user is tricked
into processing a specially crafted executable with utilities such as
readelf, size, strings, objdump, or nm, it may permit the execution of
arbitrary code as the user running the utility. The Common Vulnerabilities
and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-1704
to this issue.

All users of binutils should upgrade to this updated package, which
contains backported patches to resolve these issues.
