high Nessus Plugin ID 83675
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 is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

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

Description

glibc has been updated to fix security issues :

- Fix crashes on invalid input in IBM gconv modules (CVE-2014-6040, CVE-2012-6656, bsc#894553, bsc#894556, GLIBC BZ #17325, GLIBC BZ #14134)

- Fixed a stack overflow during hosts parsing (CVE-2013-4357)

- Copy filename argument in posix_spawn_file_actions_addopen (CVE-2014-4043, bsc#882600, BZ #17048)

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
