Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2004:383 high SHIPPED_LIVE Important: glibc security update 2004-08-04 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2004-07-30 13:55:10 UTC
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.


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 21:38:53 UTC
glibc-2.2.4-32.17 is in dist-2.1AS-errata-candidate.

Comment 3 Mark J. Cox 2004-08-04 21:34:51 UTC
An errata has been issued which should help the problem 
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being 
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
