Bug Fix Advisory glibc bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2012:0498-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-04-20
Last updated on: 2012-04-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated glibc packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.

The glibc packages provide the standard C and standard math libraries used by
multiple programs on the system. Without these libraries, the Linux system
cannot function correctly.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, glibc did not walk through the entire list of Network Information
Service (NIS) password or group buffers. As a consequence, when utilizing the
NIS password or group maps, allocated memory was not freed properly, which
caused memory leaks. This update modifies glibc to walk through the entire lists
so that memory is freed as expected and memory leaks no longer occur in this
scenario. (BZ#810323)

All users of glibc are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant
to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red
Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259
