Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2013-15072
2013-08-20 22:22:10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : glibc
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 2.16
Release     : 34.fc18
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/glibc/
Summary     : The GNU libc libraries
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

Update Information:

glibc security update:

CVE-2013-2207 glibc (pt_chown): Improper pseudotty ownership and
permissions changes when granting access to the slave pseudoterminal

The fix may break chroots if their devpts was not mounted correctly.  Fix
