Description


Updated glibc packages that fix two security issues are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security
impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give
detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the
CVE links in the References section.

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 traveral 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.
Please see https://www.redhat.com/footer/terms-of-use.html

Am I vulnerable?

The constraints below list the versions that this vulnerability is patched in, and versions that are unaffected. If a patch is ready but unrealeased, then it is pending.

Or, you can just let us figure it out for you! Appcanary continously monitor your installed packages, and tell you if any of them are vulnerable.
