Summary

A GNU C library (glibc) stack-based buffer overflow in getaddrinfo() 
vulnerability affects IBM Identity Security Governance

Vulnerability Details

CVEID: CVE-2015-7547

DESCRIPTION: GNU C Library (glibc) is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer 
overflow, caused by improper bounds checking by the nss_dns backend for the 
getaddrinfo() function when performing dual A/AAAA DNS queries. By sending a 
specially crafted DNS response, a remote attacker could overflow a buffer and
execute arbitrary code on the system or cause the application to crash.
