Libdwarf 'dwarf_util.c' Heap Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Libdwarf is prone to a heap-based buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it into an insufficiently sized buffer.

An attacker can exploit this issue to cause denial-of-service condition. Due to the nature of this issue, arbitrary code execution may be possible but this has not been confirmed.

Libdwarf 20161001 and prior versions are vulnerable.
