An update that solves one vulnerability and has two fixes is now available.

Description:

This update for glibc fixes the following issues:
Security issue fixed:

  o CVE-2016-10739: Fixed an improper implementation of getaddrinfo function
    which could allow applications to incorrectly assume that had parsed a
    valid string, without the possibility of embedded HTTP headers or other
    potentially dangerous substrings (bsc#1122729).


Other issue fixed:

  o Fixed an issue where pthread_mutex_trylock did not use a correct order of
    instructions while maintained the robust mutex list due to missing compiler
    barriers (bsc#1130045).
  o Added new Japanese Era name support (bsc#1100396).
