CVE-2018-18309: Fixed an invalid memory address dereference was discovered in read_reloc in reloc.c (bsc#1111996)

CVE-2018-18483: Fixed get_count function provided by libiberty that allowed attackers to cause a denial of service or other unspecified impact (bsc#1112535)

CVE-2018-18484: Fixed stack exhaustion in the C++ demangling functions provided by libiberty, caused by recursive stack frames (bsc#1112534)

CVE-2018-18605: Fixed a heap-based buffer over-read issue was discovered in the function sec_merge_hash_lookup causing a denial of service (bsc#1113255)

CVE-2018-18606: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference in
_bfd_add_merge_section when attempting to merge sections with large alignments, causing denial of service (bsc#1113252)

CVE-2018-18607: Fixed a NULL pointer dereference in elf_link_input_bfd when used for finding STT_TLS symbols without any TLS section, causing denial of service (bsc#1113247)

CVE-2018-19931: Fixed a heap-based buffer overflow in bfd_elf32_swap_phdr_in in elfcode.h (bsc#1118831)

CVE-2018-19932: Fixed an integer overflow and infinite loop caused by the IS_CONTAINED_BY_LMA (bsc#1118830)

CVE-2018-20623: Fixed a use-after-free in the error function in elfcomm.c (bsc#1121035)

CVE-2018-20651: Fixed a denial of service via a NULL pointer dereference in elf_link_add_object_symbols in elflink.c (bsc#1121034)

CVE-2018-20671: Fixed an integer overflow that can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow in load_specific_debug_section in objdump.c (bsc#1121056)

CVE-2018-1000876: Fixed integer overflow in bfd_get_dynamic_reloc_upper_bound,bfd_canonicalize_dynamic_reloc in objdump (bsc#1120640)

CVE-2019-1010180: Fixed an out of bound memory access that could lead to crashes (bsc#1142772)

enable xtensa architecture (Tensilica lc6 and related)

Use -ffat-lto-objects in order to provide assembly for static libs (bsc#1141913).

Fixed some LTO build issues (bsc#1133131 bsc#1133232).

riscv: Don't check ABI flags if no code section

Fixed a segfault in ld when building some versions of pacemaker (bsc#1154025, bsc#1154016).

Add avr, epiphany and rx to target_list so that the common binutils can handle all objects we can create with crosses (bsc#1152590).

Update to binutils 2.32: The binutils now support for the C-SKY processor series.

The x86 assembler now supports a -mvexwig=[0|1] option to control encoding of VEX.W-ignored (WIG) VEX instructions. It also has a new

-mx86-used-note=[yes|no] option to generate (or not) x86 GNU property notes.

The MIPS assembler now supports the Loongson EXTensions R2 (EXT2), the Loongson EXTensions (EXT) instructions, the Loongson Content Address Memory (CAM) ASE and the Loongson MultiMedia extensions Instructions (MMI) ASE.

The addr2line, c++filt, nm and objdump tools now have a default limit on the maximum amount of recursion that is allowed whilst demangling strings. This limit can be disabled if necessary.

Objdump's --disassemble option can now take a parameter, specifying the starting symbol for disassembly. Disassembly will continue from this symbol up to the next symbol or the end of the function.

The BFD linker will now report property change in linker map file when merging GNU properties.

The BFD linker's -t option now doesn't report members within archives, unless -t is given twice. This makes it more useful when generating a list of files that should be packaged for a linker bug report.

The GOLD linker has improved warning messages for relocations that refer to discarded sections.

Improve relro support on s390 [fate#326356]

Fix broken debug symbols (bsc#1118644)

Handle ELF compressed header alignment correctly.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
