Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.68310
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2010:0793
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2010:0793.

The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple
programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the
standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot
function properly.

It was discovered that the glibc dynamic linker/loader did not perform
sufficient safety checks when loading dynamic shared objects (DSOs) to
provide callbacks for its auditing API during the execution of
privileged programs. A local attacker could use this flaw to escalate
their privileges via a carefully-chosen system DSO library containing
unsafe constructors. (CVE-2010-3856)

Red Hat would like to thank Ben Hawkes and Tavis Ormandy for reporting this
issue.

All users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a
backported patch to correct this issue.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
