Hi,

Our fuzzer caught NULL-Pointer dereference problems in eu-ar.c in the latest
elfutils(v0.174) code base, those inputs will cause the signal SIGSEGV,
Segmentation fault. I have confirmed them with address sanitizer. 

Please use the “ ./eu-ar -tv $POC ” to reproduce the bug. If you have any
questions, please let me know. Thank you.

The ASAN dumps the stack trace as follows:
