Package : eglibc Version : 2.13-38+deb7u11 CVE ID : CVE-2016-1234 CVE-2016-3075 CVE-2016-3706

Several vulnerabilities have been fixed in the Debian GNU C Library, eglibc:


Alexander Cherepanov discovered that the glibc's glob implementation
suffered from a stack-based buffer overflow when it was called with the
GLOB_ALTDIRFUNC flag and encountered a long file name.


The getnetbyname implementation in nss_dns was susceptible to a stack
overflow and a crash if it was invoked on a very long name.


Michael Petlan reported that getaddrinfo copied large amounts of address
data to the stack, possibly leading to a stack overflow. This complements
the fix for CVE-2013-4458.

For Debian 7 "Wheezy", these problems have been fixed in version 2.13-38+deb7u11.

We recommend you to upgrade your eglibc packages.
