GNU glibc 'getaddrinfo()' Function Multiple Stack Buffer Overflow Vulnerabilities

GNU glibc is prone to multiple stack-based buffer-overflow vulnerabilities because it fails to adequately bounds-check user-supplied data before copying it to an insufficiently sized memory buffer.

An attacker can exploit these issues to cause denial-of-service condition. Due to the nature of this issue, code-execution may be possible; however this has not been confirmed.
