[slackware-security] glibc (SSA:2012-041-03)

New glibc packages are available for Slackware 13.1, 13.37, and -current to
fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.37 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/glibc-2.13-i486-5_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched an overflow in tzfile. This was evidently first reported in
2009, but is only now getting around to being patched. To exploit it,
one must be able to write beneath /usr/share/zoneinfo, which is usually
not possible for a normal user, but may be in the case where they are
chroot()ed to a directory that they own.
For more information, see:
http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2009-5029
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-i18n-2.13-i486-5_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
patches/packages/glibc-profile-2.13-i486-5_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-solibs-2.13-i486-5_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
(* Security fix *)
patches/packages/glibc-zoneinfo-2.13-noarch-5_slack13.37.txz: Rebuilt.
