SUSE SLED10 / SLES10 Security Update : glibc (SUSE-SU-2013:0858-1)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 83588
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 SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This collective update for the GNU C library (glibc) provides the following fixes :

- Fix stack overflow in getaddrinfo with many results (bnc#813121, CVE-2013-1914)

- Fix locking in _IO_cleanup (bnc#796982)

- Fix buffer overflow in glob (bnc#691365)

- Fix memory leak in execve (bnc#805899)

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

Update the affected glibc packages
