Security AdvisorySecurity Advisory
Original Publication Date: 10/02/2014
Multiple directory traversal vulnerabilities in GNU C Library (aka glibc or
libc6) before 2.20 allow context-dependent attackers to bypass ForceCommand
restrictions and possibly have other unspecified impact via a .. (dot dot) in
a (1) LC_*, (2) LANG, or other locale environment variable.
Off-by-one error in the __gconv_translit_find function in gconv_trans.c in GNU
C Library (aka glibc) allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of
service (crash) or execute arbitrary code via vectors related to the CHARSET
environment variable and gconv transliteration modules.
Stack-based buffer overflow in the getaddrinfo function in
sysdeps/posix/getaddrinfo.c in GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.18 and
earlier allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a (1)
hostname or (2) IP address that triggers a large number of AF_INET6 address
results. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for
This vulnerability may allow remote attackers to bypass restrictions and
execute arbitrary code or cause a denial-of-service (DoS).
