Fedora 28 : glibc (2018-916dfe0d86)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 120618

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

This update ensures that valgrind works again without installing glibc debuginfo packages (RHBZ#1570246). It also addresses a security vulnerability in the `mempcpy` implementation for the Intel Xeon Phi processors (CVE-2018-11237, RHBZ#1581275). Furthermore, the switch to libidn2 uses the final upstream patches (RHBZ#1452750(.

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.

Solution

Update the affected glibc package.
