DescriptionFixes CVE-2018-16062, CVE-2018-16402 and CVE-2018-16403. unstrip:
Handle SHT_GROUP sections. strip: Handle mixed (out of order) allocated/non-allocated sections. elfcompress: Don't rewrite input file if no section data needs updating. Try harder to keep same file mode bits (suid) on rewrite. libelf, libdw and all tools now handle extended shnum and shstrndx correctly.

Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
