    Debian Bug     : 775165
    
    In DSA 3123 the binutils package was updated for several security issues.
    This update adds rebuilt packages for binutils-mingw-w64, so these will
    take advantage of the fixes. For reference the original advisory text
    follows.
    
    Multiple security issues have been found in binutils, a toolbox for 
    binary file manipulation. These vulnerabilities include multiple memory 
    safety errors, buffer overflows, use-after-frees and other implementation 
    errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, the bypass of
    security restrictions, path traversal attack or denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 2+deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your binutils-mingw-w64 packages.
