Description

Multiple integer overflows in malloc/malloc.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (heap corruption) via a large value to the (1) pvalloc, (2) valloc, (3) posix_memalign, (4) memalign, or (5) aligned_alloc functions.

Solution(s)

  • oracle-linux-upgrade-glibc
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-glibc-common
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-glibc-devel
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-glibc-headers
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-glibc-utils
  • oracle-linux-upgrade-nscd

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
