Fedora 27 : glibc (2017-828f8a8fc6)

High Nessus Plugin ID 105918


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update addresses RHBZ#1468837, which caused bash to lack job control in mock chroots. (Note that glibc inside the chroot needs to be upgraded for the fix to be effective.)

In additon, two dynamic linker issues where fixed which are not security bugs, but received CVE IDs nevertheless (RHBZ#1524867, CVE-2017-1000408, CVE-2017-1000409).

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


Update the affected glibc package.
