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):

* glibc: realpath() buffer underflow when getcwd() returns relative path
allows privilege escalation (CVE-2018-1000001)

* glibc: Buffer overflow in glob with GLOB_TILDE (CVE-2017-15670)

* glibc: Buffer overflow during unescaping of user names with the ~
operator (CVE-2017-15804)

* glibc: denial of service in getnetbyname function (CVE-2014-9402)

* glibc: DNS resolver NULL pointer dereference with crafted record type
(CVE-2015-5180)

* glibc: Fragmentation attacks possible when EDNS0 is enabled
(CVE-2017-12132)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS
score, and other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in
the References section.

Red Hat would like to thank halfdog for reporting CVE-2018-1000001. The
CVE-2015-5180 issue was discovered by Florian Weimer (Red Hat Product
Security).

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.5 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.
