description: In dwarf_get_size_of_val() with

  _dwarf_make_CU_Context() is insufficiently cautious about
  the length of a CU being absurd.
  Unclear as yet if this is the problem
  but it is a problem and is fixed for next release.

> fixed for tumbleweed

How are we for a maintenance update for leap 42.2?
Comment 5 Karl Cheng 2017-08-19 08:02:14 UTC
This has still not been updated for 42.2 or 42.3, moving.
Comment 6 Alexander Bergmann 2018-04-13 15:57:45 UTC
Move bug report to openSUSE Leap 42.3.

Any update on a submission for Leap?
Comment 7 Tomáš Chvátal 2019-07-11 11:06:14 UTC
This is automated batch bugzilla cleanup.

The openSUSE 42.3 changed to end-of-life (EOL [1]) status. As such
it is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any
further security or bug fix updates.
As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
openSUSE (At this moment openSUSE Leap 15.1, 15.0 and Tumbleweed) please
feel free to reopen this bug against that version (!you must update the
"Version" component in the bug fields, do not just reopen please), or
alternatively create a new ticket.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed
during the lifetime of the release.
