Description

The remote OracleVM system is missing necessary patches to address critical security updates :

  • Switch to use malloc when the input line is too long [Orabug 19951108]

  • Use a /sys/devices/system/cpu/online for _SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN implementation [Orabug 17642251] (Joe Jin)

  • Fix parsing of numeric hosts in gethostbyname_r (CVE-2015-0235, #1183532).

  • Remove gconv transliteration loadable modules support (CVE-2014-5119, - _nl_find_locale: Improve handling of crafted locale names (CVE-2014-0475,

  • Fix patch for integer overflows in *valloc and memalign. (CVE-2013-4332, #1011805).

  • Fix return code when starting an already started nscd daemon (#979413).

  • Fix getnameinfo for many PTR record queries (#1020486).

  • Return EINVAL error for negative sizees to getgroups (#995207).

  • Fix integer overflows in *valloc and memalign. (CVE-2013-4332, #1011805).

  • Add support for newer L3 caches on x86-64 and correctly count the number of hardware threads sharing a cacheline (#1003420).

  • Revert incomplete fix for bug #758193.

  • Fix _nl_find_msg malloc failure case, and callers (#957089).

  • Test on init_fct, not result->__init_fct, after demangling (#816647).

  • Don
