=========================================================== 
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-366-1           October 18, 2006
binutils vulnerability
CVE-2005-4808
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 5.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 5.10:
  binutils                                 2.16.1-2ubuntu6.3
  binutils-static                          2.16.1-2ubuntu6.3

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

A buffer overflow was discovered in gas (the GNU assembler). By
tricking an user or automated system (like a compile farm) into
assembling a specially crafted source file with gcc or gas, this could
be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.


Updated packages for Ubuntu 5.10:
