[slackware-security]  glibc (SSA:2016-054-02)

New glibc packages are available for Slackware 14.1 and -current to
fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.17-i486-11_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  This update provides a patch to fix the stack-based buffer overflow in
  libresolv that could allow specially crafted DNS responses to seize
  control of execution flow in the DNS client (CVE-2015-7547).  However,
  due to a patch applied to Slackware's glibc back in 2009 (don't use the
  gethostbyname4() lookup method as it was causing some cheap routers to
  misbehave), we were not vulnerable to that issue.  Nevertheless it seems
  prudent to patch the overflows anyway even if we're not currently using
  the code in question.  Thanks to mancha for the backported patch.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2015-7547
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.17-i486-11_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.17-i486-11_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.17-i486-11_slack14.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
