Description

The getaddrinfo function in glibc before 2.15, when compiled with libidn and the AI_IDN flag is used, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (invalid free) and possibly execute arbitrary code via unspecified vectors, as demonstrated by an internationalized domain name to ping6.
