CVE-2016-4491

Published: 24 February 2017

The d_print_comp function in cp-demangle.c in libiberty allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault and crash) via a crafted binary, which triggers infinite recursion and a buffer overflow, related to a node having "itself as ancestor more than once."
