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.

Synopsis

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

Description

glibc has been updated to fix four security issues :

- CVE-2014-0475: Directory traversal in locale environment handling (bnc#887022)

- CVE-2014-7817: wordexp failed to honour WRDE_NOCMD (bsc#906371)

- CVE-2014-9402: Avoid infinite loop in nss_dns getnetbyname (bsc#910599)

- CVE-2015-1472: Fixed buffer overflow in wscanf (bsc#916222)

This non-security issue has been fixed :

- Fix missing zero termination (bnc#918233)

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
