openSUSE Security Update : glibc (openSUSE-SU-2014:1115-1)

high Nessus Plugin ID 77659
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

glibc was updated to fix three security issues :

- A directory traversal in locale environment handling was fixed (CVE-2014-0475, bnc#887022, GLIBC BZ #17137)

- Disable gconv transliteration module loading which could be used for code execution (CVE-2014-5119, bnc#892073, GLIBC BZ #17187)

- Fix crashes on invalid input in IBM gconv modules (CVE-2014-6040, bnc#894553, BZ #17325)

Solution

Update the affected glibc packages.
