Red Hat Security Advisory 2016-2573-02 - The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries, POSIX thread libraries, standard math libraries, and the name service cache daemon used by multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly. Security Fix: A stack overflow vulnerability was found in _nss_dns_getnetbyname_r. On systems with nsswitch configured to include "networks: dns" with a privileged or network-facing service that would attempt to resolve user-provided network names, an attacker could provide an excessively long network name, resulting in stack corruption and code execution.

Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Low: glibc security, bug fix, and enhancement update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2016:2573-02
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2016-2573.html
Issue date: 2016-11-03
CVE Names: CVE-2016-3075
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An update for glibc is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Low. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which
gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from
the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Client Optional (v. 7) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ComputeNode (v. 7) - x86_64

3. Description:

The glibc packages provide the standard C libraries (libc), POSIX thread
libraries (libpthread), standard math libraries (libm), and the name
service cache daemon (nscd) used by multiple programs on the system.
Without these libraries, the Linux system cannot function correctly.

Security Fix(es):

* A stack overflow vulnerability was found in _nss_dns_getnetbyname_r. On
systems with nsswitch configured to include "networks: dns" with a
privileged or network-facing service that would attempt to resolve
user-provided network names, an attacker could provide an excessively long
network name, resulting in stack corruption and code execution.
(CVE-2016-3075)

This issue was discovered by Florian Weimer (Red Hat).

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 7.3 Release Notes linked from the References section.

4. Solution:

For details on how to apply this update, which includes the changes
described in this advisory, refer to:

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

For the update to take effect, all services linked to the glibc library
must be restarted, or the system rebooted.
