The stacktrace of this issue appears to be a NULL pointer access. However the upstream maintainer changed the summary of the bugreport to “DW_AT_name with out of bounds reference”. The commit also reference to “DW_AT_name with out of bounds reference” The complete ASan output of the issue: # nm -A -a -l -S -s --special-syms --synthetic --with-symbol-versions -D $FILE ==8739==ERROR: AddressSanitizer: SEGV on unknown address 0x000000000000 (pc 0x00000053bf16 bp 0x7ffcab59ee60 sp 0x7ffcab59ee20 T0) ==8739==The signal is caused by a READ memory access. ==8739==Hint: address points to the zero page. #0 0x53bf15 in bfd_hash_hash /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/hash.c:441:15 #1 0x53bf15 in bfd_hash_lookup /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/hash.c:467 #2 0x6a2049 in insert_info_hash_table /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:487:37 #3 0x6a2049 in comp_unit_hash_info /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:3776 #4 0x6a2049 in stash_maybe_update_info_hash_tables /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:4120 #5 0x69cbbc in stash_maybe_enable_info_hash_tables /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:4214:3 #6 0x69cbbc in _bfd_dwarf2_find_nearest_line /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/dwarf2.c:4613 #7 0x5f330e in _bfd_elf_find_line /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/bfd/elf.c:8695:10 #8 0x5176a3 in print_symbol /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/binutils/nm.c:1003:9 #9 0x514e4d in print_symbols /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/binutils/nm.c:1084:7 #10 0x514e4d in display_rel_file /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/binutils/nm.c:1200 #11 0x510976 in display_file /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/binutils/nm.c:1318:7 #12 0x50f4ce in main /var/tmp/portage/sys-devel/binutils-9999/work/binutils/binutils/nm.c:1792:12 #13 0x7fd148c7b680 in __libc_start_main /var/tmp/portage/sys-libs/glibc-2.23-r4/work/glibc-2.23/csu/../csu/libc-start.c:289 #14 0x41a638 in chmod (/usr/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/binutils-bin/git/nm+0x41a638) AddressSanitizer can not provide additional info.
