Re: [RHSA-2000:057-04] glibc vulnerabilities in ld.so, locale and gettext
From: Jim Knoble <jmknoble () PINT-STOWP CX>

What about the compatibility glibc libraries under Red Hat Linux 6.x:

  $ cat /etc/redhat-release
  Red Hat Linux release 6.2 (Zoot)
  $ rpm -qa |fgrep compat |fgrep libc
  compat-glibc-5.2-2.0.7.2
  $

Are they vulnerable?  Will a fix be released?  Do any other
distributions have such compatibility libraries?
