GNU glibc 'libio/wstrops.c' Local Integer Overflow Vulnerability

GNU glibc is prone to a local integer-overflow vulnerability.

Successful exploits may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of a user running an application that uses the affected library. Failed exploit attempts may crash the application, denying service to legitimate users.

Note: This issue was previously titled 'GNU glibc 'libio/wstrops.c' Integer Overflow Vulnerability'. The title have been changed to better document it.
