glibc: NULL pointer dereference in stub resolver with unconnectable name server addresses
Last modified: 2017-11-08 05:16:18 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1316972 +++
If /etc/resolv.conf contains addresses which cause the connect system call to fail immediately, queries which trigger search along the search path result in a segmentation fault.
A workaround is to remove the problematic addresses from /etc/resolv.conf.

swbz#19825 is a very similar bug in send_vc/TCP (the original bug is about send_dg/UDP), so far only observed under valgrind.
swbz#19831 and swbz#19830 should be backported as well, to get cleaner test suite runs.
This bug did not make the rhel-6.9 release but will be reconsidered for rhel-6.10.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 transitioned to the Production 3 Phase on May 10,
2017. During the Production 3 Phase, Critical impact Security Advisories
(RHSAs) and selected Urgent Priority Bug Fix Advisories (RHBAs) may be released
as they become available.
This issue does not qualify, but it was addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 as bug 1320596.
