Description

An update for glibc is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 Advanced Update Support.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries (libc), POSIX thread libraries (libpthread), standard math libraries (libm), and the name service cache daemon (nscd) used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly.

Security Fix(es) :

  • It was discovered that, under certain circumstances, glibc

Security Fix(es) :

* It was discovered that, under certain circumstances, glibc's

queries to unintended recipients, resulting in information disclosure
or data loss due to the application encountering corrupted data.
