Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 74477
hosts are looked up in DNS first, despite nsswitch requesting otherwise
Last modified: 2016-11-24 09:48:52 EST
In /etc/nsswitch.conf I have the default
hosts: files nisplus dns
However, for hosts that have both DNS and /etc/hosts entry, the DNS entry is
used and only in a host is not known to DNS, the /etc/hosts entry will be used.
This might have secutiry implications is certain cases, so setting "Severity:
Can you attach a strace output of such program plus what exactly do you have
Works just fine for me.
I no longer can reproduce it, sorry.
