Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:153
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : binutils
Date : August 28, 2006
Affected: 2006.0, Corporate 3.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A stack-based buffer overflow in messages.c in the GNU as (gas)
assembler in Free Software Foundation GNU Binutils before 20050721
allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via a .c file with crafted
inline assembly code (CVE-2005-4807).

Buffer overflow in getsym in tekhex.c in libbfd in Free Software
Foundation GNU Binutils before 20060423, as used by GNU strings, allows
context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application
crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a file with a crafted
Tektronix Hex Format (TekHex?) record in which the length character is
not a valid hexadecimal character (CVE-2006-2362).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
