Description

This update addresses a minor security bug (CVE-2016-3706) and works around a bug in Address Sanitizer (ASAN) which would cause ASAN-enabled binaries to fail after the update to glibc-2.22-16.fc23 (Fedora#1335011). Locale updates are included as well.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora update system website. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
