Description Florian Weimer 2019-11-22 21:18:58 UTC
Bug 1595191 only fixed binaries linked against glibc 2.1 or later. The legacy stdio implementation in libio/oldstdfiles.c needs a similar check for interposition.

    libio: Disable vtable validation for pre-2.1 interposed handles [BZ #25203]
    Commit c402355dfa7807b8e0adb27c009135a7e2b9f1b0 ("libio: Disable
    vtable validation in case of interposition [BZ #23313]") only covered
    the interposable glibc 2.1 handles, in libio/stdfiles.c.  The
    parallel code in libio/oldstdfiles.c needs similar detection logic.
    Fixes (again) commit db3476aff19b75c4fdefbe65fcd5f0a90588ba51
    ("libio: Implement vtable verification [BZ #20191]").

Comment 4 Sergey Kolosov 2020-06-19 12:30:38 UTC
Verified with Counter Strike server. It fails on glibc-2.17-313.el7 with "Fatal error: glibc detected an invalid stdio handle" and it runs on glibc-2.17-314.el7.
