Updated elfutils package fixes CVE-2014-0172Publication date: 16 Apr 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
Updated elfutils packages fix security vulnerability: The libdw library provides support for accessing DWARF debugging information inside ELF files. An integer overflow flaw in check_section(), leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, was found in the libdw library. A malicious ELF file could cause an application using libdw (such as eu-readelf) to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application (CVE-2014-0172).
