Advisory: RHBA-2012:1257-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-09-12
Last updated on: 2012-09-12
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated gdb packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The GNU Debugger (GDB) allows debugging of programs written in C, C++, Java, and
other languages by executing them in a controlled fashion and then printing out
their data.

This update fixes the following bug:

* When a struct member was at an offset greater than 256 MB, the resulting bit
position within the struct overflowed and caused an invalid access by GDB. With
this update, the code has been modified to ensure that GDB can access such
positions. (BZ#837894)

All users of gdb are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
