GDB 6.6 - Process_Coff_Symbol UPX File Buffer Overflow Vulnerability



source: http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/24291/info


GDB is prone to a buffer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to properly check bounds when handling specially crafted executable files.

Attackers could leverage this issue to run arbitrary code outside of a restricted environment, which may lead to privilege escalation. Symantec has not confirmed code execution.
