Summary

The remote host is missing an update for the 'glibc' package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Insight

Insight

The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot function properly. An off-by-one heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in glibc's internal __gconv_translit_find() function. An attacker able to make an application call the iconv_open() function with a specially crafted argument could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of that application. (CVE-2014-5119) A directory traversal flaw was found in the way glibc loaded locale files. An attacker able to make an application use a specially crafted locale name value (for example, specified in an LC_* environment variable) could possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of that application. (CVE-2014-0475) Red Hat would like to thank Stephane Chazelas for reporting CVE-2014-0475. All glibc users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these issues. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at the linked references. 5. Bugs fixed: 1102353 - CVE-2014-0475 glibc: directory traversal in LC_* locale handling 1119128 - CVE-2014-5119 glibc: off-by-one error leading to a heap-based buffer overflow flaw in __gconv_translit_find() 6.
