CVE-2017-9752 at MITRE

Description

bfd/vms-alpha.c in the Binary File Descriptor (BFD) library (aka libbfd), as distributed in GNU Binutils 2.28, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (buffer overflow and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a crafted binary file, as demonstrated by mishandling of this file in the _bfd_vms_get_value and _bfd_vms_slurp_etir functions during "objdump -D" execution.

Note from the SUSE Security Team on the binutils package

SUSE considers binutils a developer tool which does not receive untrusted input. Code processed by binutils is being executed in any normal scenario, so security exploits could just inject regular binary code. For this reason we update binutils only around once a year to the current stable version to catch up on features and bugfixes. If you are processing untrusted binary code with binutils we recommend doing so on a seperate system or VM.
