Advisory ID: RHSA-2014:1118-01

Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1118.html

Issue date: 2014-09-02

CVE Names: CVE-2014-5119

=====================================================================

 

1. Summary:

 

Updated glibc packages that fix one security issue are now available for

Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.6 Long Life, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.9

Extended Update Support, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 Advanced Update

Support, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4 Extended Update Support.

 

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Important security

impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which

gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the

References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AUS (v. 6.2 server) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Compute Node Optional EUS (v. 6.4) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux EUS (v. 5.9 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node EUS (v. 6.4) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux LL (v. 5.6 server) - i386, ia64, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server EUS (v. 6.4) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional AUS (v. 6.2) - x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional EUS (v. 6.4) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64

 

3. Description:

 

The glibc packages contain the standard C libraries used by multiple

programs on the system. These packages contain the standard C and the

standard math libraries. Without these two libraries, a Linux system cannot

function properly.

 

An off-by-one heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in glibc's internal

__gconv_translit_find() function. An attacker able to make an application

call the iconv_open() function with a specially crafted argument could

possibly use this flaw to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of

that application. (CVE-2014-5119)

 

All glibc users are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which

contain a backported patch to correct this issue.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the

Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258

 

5. Bugs fixed (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

 

1119128 - CVE-2014-5119 glibc: off-by-one error leading to a heap-based buffer overflow flaw in __gconv_translit_find()
