  • patches/packages/glibc-2.11.1-i486-9_slack13.1.txz
    This update patches a security issue __nss_hostname_digits_dots() function
    of glibc which may be triggered through the gethostbyname*() set of
    functions. This flaw could allow local or remote attackers to take control
    of a machine running a vulnerable version of glibc. Thanks to Qualys for
    discovering this issue (also known as the GHOST vulnerability.)
