asm/labels.c in Netwide Assembler (NASM) is prone to NULL Pointer Dereference, which allows the attacker to cause a denial of service via a crafted file.

PoC:
1. echo "equ push rax" > poc
2. nasm -f elf poc

insn_is_label remains FALSE and therefore leaving result->label assigned to NULL which is then dereference in islocal().

[...]

if (i == TOKEN_ID || (insn_is_label && i == TOKEN_INSN)) { <-- not taken
/* there's a label here */
first = false;
result->label = tokval.t_charptr;
i = stdscan(NULL, &tokval);
if (i == ':') { /* skip over the optional colon */
i = stdscan(NULL, &tokval);
} else if (i == 0) {
nasm_error(ERR_WARNING | ERR_WARN_OL | ERR_PASS1,
"label alone on a line without a colon might be in error");
}
if (i != TOKEN_INSN || tokval.t_integer != I_EQU) {
/*
* FIXME: location.segment could be NO_SEG, in which case
* it is possible we should be passing 'absolute.segment'. Look into this.
* Work out whether that is *really* what we should be doing.
* Generally fix things. I think this is right as it is, but
* am still not certain.
*/
define_label(result->label,
in_absolute ? absolute.segment : location.segment,
location.offset, true);
[...]

static bool islocal(const char *l)
{
if (tasm_compatible_mode) {
if (l[0] == '@' && l[1] == '@')
return true;
}
return (l[0] == '.' && l[1] != '.'); <-- boom
}
