(elfutils: Heap-based buffer overflow)
An integer overflow, in the check_section function of dwarf_begin_elf.c,

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted file,
possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges
of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
There is no known workaround at this time.
