[slackware-security]  glibc (SSA:2010-295-01)

New glibc packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched "dynamic linker expands $ORIGIN in setuid library search path".
  This security issue allows a local attacker to gain root if they can create
  a hard link to a setuid root binary.  Thanks to Tavis Ormandy.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-3847
    http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2010/Oct/257
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.11.1-i486-4_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.11.1-noarch-4_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
