Fedora Update Notification
2018-09-07 15:22:29.302446

Name : glibc
Product : Fedora 27
Version : 2.26
Release : 30.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 removes a misleading comment from the documentation of the `abort`
function (RHBZ#1615608). A minor security vulnerability, CVE-2018-11237, a
buffer overflow in mempcpy for Xeon Phi (RHBZ#1581275) has been addressed. The
update also fixes the waiters-after-spinning case in the
`pthread_cond_broadcast` function (RHBZ#1622669). Two bugs in the CPUID
processing on x86 are also fixed (upstream bugs 23456 and 23459). The
verification of vtables for stdio is improved (upstream bugs 23236 and 23313).
test case under a non-free license is removed (upstream bug 23363). The
`if_nametoindex` now checks the length of interface names (upstream bug 22442).
`getifaddrs` no longer returns interfaces with NULL names (upstream bug 23171).
C++ compatibility of `iseqsig` has been improved (upstream bug 23171). A kernel
header interaction issue related to `struct timespec` was addressed (upstream
bug 23349).
