Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in elfutils, the worst of
which may allow remote attackers to cause a Denial of Service
condition.

Background
==========

Elfutils provides a library and utilities to access, modify and analyse
ELF objects.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 dev-libs/elfutils < 0.169-r1 >= 0.169-r1

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in elfutils. Please
review the referenced CVE identifiers for details.

Impact
======

A remote attacker could possibly cause a Denial of Service condition
via specially crafted ELF files.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All elfutils users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/elfutils-0.169-r1"

Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools
such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these
packages.
