- CVEs with nessus.description==The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201602-02 (GNU C Library: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in the GNU C Library:
The Google Security Team and Red Hat discovered a stack-based buffer overflow in the send_dg() and send_vc() functions due to a buffer mismanagement when getaddrinfo() is called with AF_UNSPEC (CVE-2015-7547).
The strftime() function access invalid memory when passed out-of-range data, resulting in a crash (CVE-2015-8776).
An integer overflow was found in the __hcreate_r() function (CVE-2015-8778).
Multiple unbounded stack allocations were found in the catopen() function (CVE-2015-8779).
Please review the CVEs referenced below for additional vulnerabilities that had already been fixed in previous versions of sys-libs/glibc, for which we have not issued a GLSA before.
A remote attacker could exploit any application which performs host name resolution using getaddrinfo() in order to execute arbitrary code or crash the application. The other vulnerabilities can possibly be exploited to cause a Denial of Service or leak information.
A number of mitigating factors for CVE-2015-7547 have been identified.
