Description

Multiple vulnerabilities was discovered and fixed in glibc :

The addmntent function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier does not report an error status for failed attempts to write to the /etc/mtab file, which makes it easier for local users to trigger corruption of this file, as demonstrated by writes from a process with a small RLIMIT_FSIZE value, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0296 (CVE-2011-1089).

Integer overflow in posix/fnmatch.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.13 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a long UTF8 string that is used in an fnmatch call with a crafted pattern argument, a different vulnerability than CVE-2011-1071 (CVE-2011-1659).

crypt_blowfish before 1.1, as used in glibc on certain platforms, does not properly handle 8-bit characters, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to determine a cleartext password by leveraging knowledge of a password hash (CVE-2011-2483).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
