CVE-2USN-4336-2: GNU binutils vulnerabilities
21 July 2021

Several security issues were fixed in GNU binutils.

  o Ubuntu 16.04 ESM


  o binutils - GNU assembler, linker and binary utilities


USN-4336-1 fixed several vulnerabilities in GNU binutils. This update provides
the corresponding update for Ubuntu 16.04 ESM.

Original advisory details:

It was discovered that GNU binutils contained a large number of security
issues. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a
specially-crafted file, a remote attacker could cause GNU binutils to
crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary

Update instructions

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following package

Ubuntu 16.04

  o binutils-multiarch - 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.8+esm1
    Available with UA Infra or UA Desktop
  o binutils - 2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.8+esm1
    Available with UA Infra or UA Desktop

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
