Medium Nessus Plugin ID 123928

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 4.2

Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for glibc fixes the following issues :

Security issue fixed :

CVE-2016-10739: Fixed an improper implementation of getaddrinfo function which could allow applications to incorrectly assume that had parsed a valid string, without the possibility of embedded HTTP headers or other potentially dangerous substrings (bsc#1122729).

Other issue fixed: Fixed an issue where pthread_mutex_trylock did not use a correct order of instructions while maintained the robust mutex list due to missing compiler barriers (bsc#1130045).

Added new Japanese Era name support (bsc#1100396).

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.

Solution

To install this SUSE Security Update use the SUSE recommended installation methods like YaST online_update or 'zypper patch'.

Alternatively you can run the command listed for your product :

SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Open Buildservice Development Tools 15:zypper in -t patch SUSE-SLE-Module-Development-Tools-OBS-15-2019-903=1

SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Development Tools 15:zypper in -t patch SUSE-SLE-Module-Development-Tools-15-2019-903=1
