LXer: CVE-2015-7547: glibc getaddrinfo stack-based buffer overflow

Published at LXer:

The glibc DNS client side resolver is vulnerable to a stack-based buffer overflow when the getaddrinfo() library function is used. Software using this function may be exploited with attacker-controlled domain names, attacker-controlled DNS servers, or through a man-in-the-middle attack.
