The attached program binary causes a buffer overflow in cplus-dem.c when it tries to demangle specially crafted function arguments in the binary. Both the buffer size as well as the buffer content are controlled from the binary.

objdump -x -C <file>
nm -C <file>

Tested on the following configurations
