Due to a bug in ld ( this package currently can't be build with binutils 2.35. You need to downgrade to binutils 2.34.

Edit: I have added a workaround so the build should work fine now.

Same error as alex1a. Haven't been able to find a fix, so far.

I was mistaken, after downgrading binutils libpdfium-nojs built fine as a dependency of megasync which wasn't built

selmf commented on 2020-08-24 23:14

In my case I was able to build again after the downgrade, but that was a different error from yours. Are you using any build chain components or dependencies that are non-standard variants (AUR, testing)?

kinoe commented on 2020-08-24 19:02

unfortunately build aborts even with binutils downgraded to 2.34

selmf commented on 2020-08-24 16:55

@kinoe: I can't reproduce your exact error but building with the latest binutils fails for me with a different (but similar) message.

My guess is a bug in binutils, likely: As a workaround you can try downgrading binutils to v2.34

@WonderCaT_007: Thanks for reporting. I don't think you need to be concerned. The files in question are part of Pdfium's test corpus and they probably are present to test if Pdfium is vulnerable to the exploits contained.

None of these files are being installed or run by the package and as the package comes with javascript support disabled many exploits won't work anyway.

While I still wouldn't recommend opening these with a pdf reader I don't think they contain malicious code (probably the exploit only, no payload). But that is just my assumption, upstream can probably tell you more.

The package was creation was successful. However, I did a clamav scan of the build directory and it detected two files as malicious or contains some kind of exploit code. To confirm the detection, I just checked those files with online virustotal, and one of them were detected by 18 anti virus engines. Should we be concerned?

Here are the files: libpdfium-nojs/src/pdfium/testing/resources/js.pdf: Pdf.Dropper.Agent-7158272-0 FOUND < Detected by 18 av engines in Virustotal

libpdfium-nojs/src/pdfium/testing/resources/pixel/bug_867501.pdf: Pdf.Exploit.TALOS_2018_0639-6680787-0 FOUND < Detected just by clamav
