Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-07-30 09:55:10 EDT
An audit of our glibc packages in Red Hat Enterprise Linux found a
potential flaw in the resolver which was part of a security update to
BIND 4 in November 2002.

Patch:
http://sources.redhat.com/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/libc/resolv/nss_dns/dns-network.c.diff?r1=1.15&r2=1.16&cvsroot=glibc

glibc as provided by Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 does not include
this patch.  We're investigating to see if this is actually an issue
for the glibc-2.2.4 as shipped in RHEL2.1 or is mitigated by other
changes, but will include the fix in the next update in any event.
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2004-07-30 17:38:53 EDT
glibc-2.2.4-32.17 is in dist-2.1AS-errata-candidate.
Comment 3 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-08-04 17:34:51 EDT
