Description Thomas Deutschmann gentoo-dev Security 2016-11-15 15:08:49 UTC
A vulnerability was found in gcc. A stack overflow in the libiberty demangler library causes its host applications to crash. The stack contains return addresses that are not mapped in the inferior's process address space and/or the stack pointer is pointing to a location outside the default stack region. These conditions likely indicate stack corruption, which is generally considered exploitable.
