Debian DLA-411-2 : eglibc regression update
High Nessus Plugin ID 88599
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe fix for CVE-2014-9761 in Squeeze wrongly backported the upstream patch. New symbols were not declared as private and the ABI changed.
This made some programs and services crash after the upgrade, and needed to be restarted.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
