Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.870576
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for glibc RHSA-2012:0397-01
Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'glibc'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'glibc'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
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 correctly.

An integer overflow flaw was found in the implementation of the printf
functions family. This 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-2012-0864)

All users of glibc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a patch to resolve this issue.

Affected Software/OS:
glibc on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.

CVSS Score:
6.8
