[slackware-security] glibc XDR overflow fix (SSA:2003-141-03)

An integer overflow in the xdrmem_getbytes() function found in the glibc
library has been fixed. This could allow a remote attacker to execute
arbitrary code by exploiting RPC service that use xdrmem_getbytes(). None of
the default RPC services provided by Slackware appear to use this function,
but third-party applications may make use of it.

We recommend upgrading to these new glibc packages.


Here are the details from the Slackware 9.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
Tue May 20 20:13:09 PDT 2003

(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-debug-2.3.1-i386-4.tgz: Patched, recompiled.
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.3.1-noarch-4.tgz: Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.3.1-i386-4.tgz: Patched, recompiled.
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.3.1-i386-4.tgz: Patched a buffer overflow in
some dead code (xdrmem_getbytes(), which we couldn't find used by
anything,
but it doesn't hurt to patch it anyway)
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.3.1-noarch-4.tgz: Rebuilt.
