Multiple vulnerabilities were found in glibc, the worst of which allowing
local attackers to execute arbitrary code as root.
The GNU C library is the standard C library used by Gentoo Linux
Multiple vulnerabilities were found in glibc, amongst others the
widely-known recent LD_AUDIT and $ORIGIN issues. For further
information please consult the CVE entries referenced below.
A local attacker could execute arbitrary code as root, cause a Denial
of Service, or gain privileges. Additionally, a user-assisted remote
attacker could cause the execution of arbitrary code, and a
context-dependent attacker could cause a Denial of Service.
There is no known workaround at this time.
All GNU C library users should upgrade to the latest version:
