Fixed In Version: glibc-2.17-157.el7_3.1
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The nss_db module failed to request larger result buffers when parsing groupentries. As a consequence, group entries with a size in a specific range wereskipped. With this update, nss_db detects when a group list does not fit intothe result buffer and requests a larger buffer. As a result, group entries inthe affected size range are processed correctly.
