Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.71436
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:1098
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:1098.

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

Multiple errors in glibc's formatted printing functionality could allow an
attacker to bypass FORTIFY_SOURCE protections and execute arbitrary code
using a format string flaw in an application, even though these protections
are expected to limit the impact of such flaws to an application abort.
(CVE-2012-3404, CVE-2012-3405, CVE-2012-3406)

All users of glibc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to fix these issues.

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
