 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2013:163
 http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package : glibc
 Date    : May 7, 2013
 Affected: Business Server 1.0
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Multiple vulnerabilities has been discovered and corrected in glibc:
 
 Buffer overflow in the extend_buffers function in the regular
 expression matcher (posix/regexec.c) in glibc, possibly 2.17 and
 earlier, allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
 service (memory corruption and crash) via crafted multibyte characters
 (CVE-2013-0242).
 
 Stack-based buffer overflow in the getaddrinfo function in
 sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6)
 2.17 and earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
 (crash) via a (1) hostname or (2) IP address that triggers a large
 number of domain conversion results (CVE-2013-1914).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
