Name : glibc
Product : Fedora 27
Version : 2.26
Release : 24.fc27
URL : http://www.gnu.org/software/glibc/
Summary : The GNU libc libraries
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

Update Information:

This update addresses two security vulnerabilities: * CVE-2017-16997: Check
for
empty tokens before dynamic string token expansion in the dynamic linker, so
that pre-existing privileged programs with `$ORIGIN` rpaths/runpaths do not
cause the dynamic linker to search the current directory, potentially leading
to
privilege escalation. (RHBZ#1526866). * CVE-2018-1000001: `getcwd` would
sometimes return a non-absolute path, confusing the `realpath` function,
leading
to privilege escalation in conjunction with user namespaces. (RHBZ#1533837)
In
addition, this update changes the thread stack size accounting to provide
additional stack space compared to previous glibc versions. For some
applications (`nptd` in particular), the `PTHREAD_STACK_MIN` stack size was too
small on x86-64 machines with AVX-512 support (RHBZ#1527887).
