Red Hat Security Advisory 2018-1879-01 - 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. Issues addressed include a buffer overflow vulnerability.

Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3534-1
Posted Jan 17, 2018
Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3534-1 - It was discovered that the GNU C library did not properly handle all of the possible return values from the kernel getcwd syscall. A local attacker could potentially exploit this to execute arbitrary code in setuid programs and gain administrative privileges. A memory leak was discovered in the _dl_init_paths function in the GNU C library dynamic loader. A local attacker could potentially exploit this with a specially crafted value in the LD_HWCAP_MASK environment variable, in combination with CVE-2017-1000409 and another vulnerability on a system with hardlink protections disabled, in order to gain administrative privileges. Various other issues were also addressed.
