Description

It was discovered that there was a NULL deference in dwarfutils, a tool to dump DWARF debug information from ELF objects.

For Debian 6 Squeeze, this issue has been fixed in dwarfutils version 20100214-1+deb6u1.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
