Several vulnerabilities were discovered in dwarfutils, a tool and library for reading/consuming and writing/producing DWARF debugging information. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following issues:
A specially crafted ELF file can cause a segmentation fault.
A specially crafted ELF file can cause a NULL pointer dereference.
A specially crafted DWARF section can cause an infinite loop, reading from increasing memory addresses until the application crashes.
For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 20120410-2+deb7u2.
We recommend that you upgrade your dwarfutils packages.
