Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2013:283
http://www.mandriva.com/en/support/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : glibc
Date : November 25, 2013
Affected: Business Server 1.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Updated glibc packages fixes the following security issues:

Integer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library (aka
glibc or libc6) 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary
code via a long string, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow
(CVE-2012-4412).

Stack-based buffer overflow in string/strcoll_l.c in the GNU C Library
(aka glibc or libc6) 2.17 and earlier allows context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute
arbitrary code via a long string that triggers a malloc failure and
use of the alloca function (CVE-2012-4424).

pt_chown in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.18 does not
properly check permissions for tty files, which allows local users
to change the permission on the files and obtain access to arbitrary
pseudo-terminals by leveraging a FUSE file system (CVE-2013-2207).
NOTE! This is fixed by removing pt_chown wich may break chroots if
their devpts was not mounted correctly (make sure to mount the devpts
correctly with gid=5).

sysdeps/posix/readdir_r.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6)
2.18 and earlier allows context-dependent attackers to cause a
denial of service (out-of-bounds write and crash) or possibly
execute arbitrary code via a crafted (1) NTFS or (2) CIFS image
(CVE-2013-4237).

Multiple integer overflows in malloc/malloc.c in the GNU C Library (aka
glibc or libc6) 2.18 and earlier allow context-dependent attackers to
cause a denial of service (heap corruption) via a large value to the
(1) pvalloc, (2) valloc, (3) posix_memalign, (4) memalign, or (5)
aligned_alloc functions (CVE-2013-4332).

A stack (frame) overflow flaw, which led to a denial of service
(application crash), was found in the way glibc's getaddrinfo()
function processed certain requests when called with AF_INET6. A
similar flaw to CVE-2013-1914, this affects AF_INET6 rather than
AF_UNSPEC (CVE-2013-4458).

The PTR_MANGLE implementation in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or
libc6) 2.4, 2.17, and earlier, and Embedded GLIBC (EGLIBC) does not
initialize the random value for the pointer guard, which makes it
easier for context- dependent attackers to control execution flow by
leveraging a buffer-overflow vulnerability in an application and using
the known zero value pointer guard to calculate a pointer address
(CVE-2013-4788).

Other fixes in this update:
- Correct the processing of '\x80' characters in crypt_freesec.c
- fix typo in nscd.service
