Package : eglibc Version : 2.11.3-4+deb6u6 CVE ID : CVE-2015-1781

Arjun Shankar of Red Hat discovered that gethostbyname_r and related functions compute the size of an input buffer incorrectly if the passed-in buffer is misaligned. This results in a buffer overflow.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.11.3-4+deb6u6. -- Raphaël Hertzog ◈ Debian Developer
