Pull up revision 1.2 (requested by adrianp in ticket #1160).
Fix for PR #33551 (a.k.a CVE-2006-2362)
Back port from the binutils CVS tree
Buffer overflow in getsym in tekhex.c in libbfd in Free Software Foundation
GNU Binutils before 20060423, as used by GNU strings, allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via a file with a crafted Tektronix Hex Format (TekHex)
record in which the length character is not a valid hexadecimal character.
