We've got people panicking that this CVE is still unpatched in Fedora 18, and causing segfaults to appear during 'configure' runs:

Any word on when fixed glibc will be released into Fedora?

--- Additional comment from Carlos O'Donell on 2013-03-15 14:26:49 EDT ---

I'll fix this before Monday and get rawhide and F18 updated.

We already have a well reviewed patch for update.

--- Additional comment from Carlos O'Donell on 2013-03-17 20:37:45 EDT ---

Fixed in rawhide.

Working on F18 and F19.

--- Additional comment from Carlos O'Donell on 2013-03-17 23:58:14 EDT ---

Fixed in F19.

Koji build here:

The F18 patch needed some more pre-requisites to be backported. Thus local testing for F18 is not yet complete.

--- Additional comment from Carlos O'Donell on 2013-03-18 13:23:42 EDT ---

This tracks the f18 fix.

--- Additional comment from Carlos O'Donell on 2013-03-18 13:44:34 EDT ---

Fixed in F18.
