                Mandrake Linux Security Update Advisory
________________________________________________________________________

Package name:           glibc
Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2003:037
Date:                   March 25th, 2003

Affected versions:	7.2, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, 9.0, Corporate Server 2.1,
			Multi Network Firewall 8.2,
			Single Network Firewall 7.2
________________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

 An integer overflow was discovered by eEye Digital Security in the
 xdrmem_getbytes() function of glibc 2.3.1 and earlier.  This function
 is part of the XDR encoder/decoder derived from Sun's RPC
 implementation.  Depending upon the application, this vulnerability
 can cause buffer overflows and could possibly be exploited to execute
 arbitray code.

 The provided packages contain patches that correct this issue and all
 users should upgrade.  Please note that users of Mandrake Linux 9.1
 already have this fix in the 9.1-released glibc packages.
