LXer: Patch ASAP: Tons of Linux apps can be hijacked by evil DNS servers, man-in-the-middle miscreants

Published at LXer:

Buffer overflow found in glibc. A huge amount of software can be hijacked by hackers on the other side of the internet, thanks to a serious security vulnerability in the GNU C Library (glibc). The library is used by the vast majority of Linux distributions, meaning the vulnerability is widespread.
