Insight

Multiple flaws were found in glibc. Please see the references for more information.

Solution

Solution

Run yum update glibc to update your system. Note that you may need to run yum clean all first. Once this update has been applied, reboot your instance to ensure that all processes and daemons that link against glibc are using the updated version. On new instance launches, you should still reboot after cloud-init has automatically applied this update.
