GNU binutils GAS (GNU assembler) is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly bounds-check user-supplied input before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

Remote attackers may crash the application or execute arbitrary machine code in the context of the application.
