RHSA-2003-022: glibc

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the glibc packages

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated glibc packages are available to fix a buffer overflow in the
resolver.

The GNU C library package, glibc, contains standard libraries used by
multiple programs on the system.

A read buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the glibc resolver code in
versions of glibc up to and including 2.2.5. The vulnerability is triggered
by DNS packets larger than 1024 bytes and can cause applications to crash.

In addition to this, several non-security related bugs have been fixed,
the majority for the Itanium (IA64) platform.

All Red Hat Linux Advanced Server users are advised to upgrade to these
errata packages which contain a patch to correct this vulnerability.
