Comment 24 Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2021-02-23 10:04:15 UTC

This flaw has been rated as having moderate impact for glibc packages shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux because, the maximum impact of this vulnerability is a crash, and it relies on processing untrusted input in an uncommon encoding (EUC-KR).  When this encoding is not used, the vulnerability can not be triggered.
