[slackware-security]  glibc (SSA:2015-028-01)

New glibc packages are available for Slackware 13.0, 13.1, 13.37, 14.0,
and 14.1 to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.17-i486-10_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update patches a security issue __nss_hostname_digits_dots() function
  of glibc which may be triggered through the gethostbyname*() set of
  functions.  This flaw could allow local or remote attackers to take control
  of a machine running a vulnerable version of glibc.  Thanks to Qualys for
  discovering this issue (also known as the GHOST vulnerability.)
  For more information, see:
    https://www.qualys.com/research/security-advisories/GHOST-CVE-2015-0235.txt
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-0235
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.17-i486-10_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.17-i486-10_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.17-i486-10_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2014j-noarch-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Upgraded to tzcode2014j and tzdata2014j.
