2dd7e97e-d5e8-11e5-bcbd-bc5ff45d0f28glibc -- getaddrinfo stack-based buffer overflow

Fabio Olive Leite reports:

A stack-based buffer overflow was found in libresolv when invoked from nss_dns, allowing specially crafted DNS responses to seize control of EIP in the DNS client. The buffer overflow occurs in the functions send_dg (send datagram) and send_vc (send TCP) for the NSS module when calling getaddrinfo with AF_UNSPEC family, or in some cases AF_INET6 family. The use of AF_UNSPEC (or AF_INET6 in some cases) triggers the low-level resolver code to send out two parallel queries for A and AAAA. A mismanagement of the buffers used for those queries could result in the response of a query writing beyond the alloca allocated buffer created by __res_nquery.

0765de84-a6c1-11e4-a0c1-c485083ca99cglibc -- gethostbyname buffer overflow

Robert Krátký reports:

GHOST is a 'buffer overflow' bug affecting the gethostbyname() and gethostbyname2() function calls in the glibc library. This vulnerability allows a remote attacker that is able to make an application call to either of these functions to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running the application. The gethostbyname() function calls are used for DNS resolving, which is a very common event. To exploit this vulnerability, an attacker must trigger a buffer overflow by supplying an invalid hostname argument to an application that performs a DNS resolution.
