this also affects community packages: arm-none-eabi-binutils avr-binutils mingw-w64-binutils
we may want to file separate bug reports for those packages.
Also severity "Low" is really underestimated as some of those (oob-write, stack/heap corruption) could result in code execution (which Michal Zalewski already proofed in one PoC by overwriting the IP (instruction pointer))

Assigned to the [community] package maintainers. Look at the patchset in the binutils-2.24-8 package in [testing] for help.
Comment by Sergej Pupykin (sergej) - Tuesday, 18 November 2014, 17:11 GMT
mingw-w64-binutils fixed
Comment by Anatol Pomozov (anatolik) - Tuesday, 18 November 2014, 18:18 GMT
arm-none-eabi-binutils-2.24-3 is in [testing]
Comment by Allan McRae (Allan) - Tuesday, 18 November 2014, 22:11 GMT
Surely you mean [community-testing]...
Comment by Anatol Pomozov (anatolik) - Tuesday, 18 November 2014, 22:46 GMT
Yeah, [community-testing]. In fact I just moved it to [community].
Comment by Jakob Gruber (schuay) - Wednesday, 19 November 2014, 08:30 GMT
avr-binutils is currently building will be pushed in a few minutes.
Comment by Anatol Pomozov (anatolik) - Tuesday, 30 December 2014, 00:27 GMT
The fixed were released some time ago. In fact 2.25 has been pushed to stable. The ticket can be closed now.
