RHSA-2006-0368: elfutils

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the elfutils packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated elfutils packages that address a minor security issue and various
other issues are now available.

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

The elfutils packages contain a number of utility programs and libraries
related to the creation and maintenance of executable code.

The elfutils packages that originally shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux
3 were GPL-licensed versions which lacked some functionality. Previous
updates provided fully functional versions of elfutils only under the OSL
license. This update provides a fully functional, GPL-licensed version of
elfutils.

In the OSL-licensed elfutils versions provided in previous updates, some
tools could sometimes crash when given corrupted input files. (CVE-2005-1704)

Also, when the eu-strip tool was used to create separate debuginfo files
from relocatable objects such as kernel modules (.ko), the resulting
debuginfo files (.ko.debug) were sometimes corrupted. Both of these
problems are fixed in the new version.

Users of elfutils should upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve
these issues.
