FEDORA-2018-f27586cce9 created by fweimer 2 years ago for Fedora 27
obsolete stable

This update for the glibc package addresses one moderate security vulnerability and several defects.

  • CVE-2018-19591: A file descriptor leak in if_nametoindex can lead to a denial of service due to resource exhaustion when processing getaddrinfo calls with crafted host names. Reported by Guido Vranken. (#1654000)
  • Failure to create the helper thread for getaddrinfo_a/libanl could result in a crash. (#1646381)
  • On certain Haswell-class Intel CPUs, string function feature flags could be set incorrectly, leading to a suboptimal choice of string functions. (#1641980)
  • Parallel building of locales led to nondeterminism in the RPM build process. (#1652228)
  • Various minor bug fixes from the upstream 2.26 release branch were imported as part of this update (swbz#17630, swbz#22446, swbz#22463, swbz#22447, swbz#23562, swbz#23579, swbz#22753).
