=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for glibc is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Moderate. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

3. Description:

The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries (libc), POSIX thread
libraries (libpthread), standard math libraries (libm), and the name
service cache daemon (nscd) used by multiple programs on the system.
Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly.

Security Fix(es):

* A stack overflow vulnerability was found in nan* functions that could
cause applications, which process long strings with the nan function, to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-9761)

* It was found that out-of-range time values passed to the strftime()
function could result in an out-of-bounds memory access. This could lead to
application crash or, potentially, information disclosure. (CVE-2015-8776)

* An integer overflow vulnerability was found in hcreate() and hcreate_r()
functions which could result in an out-of-bounds memory access. This could
lead to application crash or, potentially, arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2015-8778)

* A stack based buffer overflow vulnerability was found in the catopen()
function. An excessively long string passed to the function could cause it
to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8779)

* It was found that the dynamic loader did not sanitize the
LD_POINTER_GUARD environment variable. An attacker could use this flaw to
bypass the pointer guarding protection on set-user-ID or set-group-ID
programs to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running
the application. (CVE-2015-8777)

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.4 Release Notes linked from the References section.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

For the update to take effect, all services linked to the glibc library
must be restarted, or the system rebooted.
