Description John Reiser 1999-06-24 15:32:24 EDT
The /lib/ld-2.1.1.so (glibc-2.1.1-6) in RedHat 6.0 has some
uninitialized locals variables, and a malloc'ed block that
is overrun.  These bugs are also present in the released
glibc-2.1.1 at ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/glibc .  See
bug reports libc/1165 and libc/1167 at
http://www-gnats.gnu.org:8080/cgi-bin/wwwgnats.pl .
Fixes have been provided, approved, and applied by the glibc

[BitWagon has a commercial interest in getting the patches
widely applied and distributed.  If glibc-2.1.2 is not
released in time for the next RedHat release, then please
consider applying these patches to glibc-2.1.1.  Thank you.]
