Description Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-01-21 13:16:05 UTC
The string component in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) through 2.28, when running on the x32 architecture, incorrectly attempts to use a 64-bit register for size_t in assembly codes, which can lead to a segmentation fault or possibly unspecified other impact, as demonstrated by a crash in __memmove_avx_unaligned_erms in sysdeps/x86_64/multiarch/memmove-vec-unaligned-erms.S during a memcpy.

Comment 1 Dhananjay Arunesh 2019-01-21 13:16:20 UTC
Created glibc tracking bugs for this issue:

Affects: fedora-all [bug 1667932]

Comment 3 Stefan Cornelius 2019-01-21 15:40:19 UTC
Statement:

This issue did not affect the versions of glibc as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7 as they did not include support for x32.
