Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.871231
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Update for glibc RHSA-2014:1110-01
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 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.

An off-by-one heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in glibc's internal
__gconv_translit_find() function. An attacker able to make an application
call the iconv_open() function with a specially crafted argument could
possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
that application. (CVE-2014-5119)

A directory traversal flaw was found in the way glibc loaded locale files.
An attacker able to make an application use a specially crafted locale name
value (for example, specified in an LC_* environment variable) could
possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of
that application. (CVE-2014-0475)

Red Hat would like to thank Stephane Chazelas for reporting CVE-2014-0475.

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

Affected Software/OS:
glibc on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 7),
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
