Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Slackware New glibc packages are available for Slackware 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, 13.0, 13.1, and -current to fix a security issue. [More Info...]
[slackware-security]  glibc (SSA:2010-301-01)

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-i486-5_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Patched "The GNU C library dynamic linker will dlopen arbitrary DSOs
  during setuid loads."  This security issue allows a local attacker to
  gain root by specifying an unsafe DSO in the library search path to be
  used with a setuid binary in LD_AUDIT mode.
  Bug found by Tavis Ormandy (with thanks to Ben Hawkes and Julien Tinnes).
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2010-3856
    http://seclists.org/fulldisclosure/2010/Oct/344
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.11.1-i486-5_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.11.1-i486-5_slack13.1.txz:  Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.11.1-i486-5_slack13.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  (* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.11.1-noarch-5_slack13.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  Rebuilt to tzcode2010n and tzdata2010n.

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.
