The script to demonstrate the bug. From the glibc bug #12453 report

Description of problem:

This is a known bug and the upstream has already got it fixed. But as RHEL v6 is using an older version of glibc and the upstream fix has not yet been back-ported onto RHEL 6, so customers are still affected.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
glibc v2.12 on RHEL v6, including all patched version along the RHEL v6 line, from 6.0 to 6.4 and post-6.4 patches to date, and for all editions, workstation, server, etc.

The bug number recorded upstream is #12453 (or the duplicated #11952). See the relevant bug reports for glibc here:

How reproducible: Always.
From the bug reports on http://www.sourceware.org/, there is a script to exploit this bug, i.e.,
For your convenience, I've also attached the script in this report.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download the above script, http://www.sourceware.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=5218
2. run the script, it will actually create a couple c source codes and compile then, then run the produced binary
3. then on RHEL v6, it will segfault

Actual results:

Expected results:
Should run fine and produce correct results, not segfault.

Additional info:
On upstream release glibc v2.14, this bug has already been fixed. See here:

So, it is just up to RedHat to backport the fix, and produce the compatible rpm for RHEL v6 platform.

Hi, I just edit the title for this bug. Otherwise the bugzilla system will parse the string "bug #xxx" and create a hyperlink to the bug within this bug database, which in this case is not its true meaning.

Comment 8 Carlos O'Donell 2016-08-09 19:18:36 UTC
Already fixed in RHEL 6.6.
