Reporter Tenable

Description

This glibc update fixes a critical privilege escalation problem and two non-security issues :

  • An off-by-one error leading to a heap-based buffer overflow was found in __gconv_translit_find(). An exploit that targets the problem is publicly available. (CVE-2014-5119). (bnc#892073)

  • setenv-alloca.patch: Avoid unbound alloca in setenv. (bnc#892065)

  • printf-multibyte-format.patch: Don't parse %s format argument as multi-byte string. (bnc#888347)
