Updated gcc packages fix security vulnerability

Publication date: 08 Mar 2020
Type: security
Affected Mageia releases : 7


This update provides gcc 8.4.0 stable release, containing important
fixes for regressions and serious bugs in GCC 8.3 with more than 209
bugs fixed since the previous release.

It also fixes at least the following security issue:

every time the collect2 process is interrupted via a signal it can
delete random files from the hard drive, since the signal handler may
be using the path name, and passes it to the unlink function before it
is initialized.
