Description

glibc has been updated to fix a security issue and two bugs :

Security issue fixed :

  • Copy filename argument in posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen (CVE-2014-4043)

Bugs fixed :

  • don't touch user-controlled stdio locks in forked child (bsc#864081, GLIBC BZ #12847)

  • Fix infinite loop in check_pf (bsc#909053, GLIBC BZ #12926)

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