CVE Request -- glibc: Integer overflows, leading to stack-based buffer overflows in strto* related routines

Hello Kurt, Steve, vendors,
multiple integer overflows, leading to stack-based buffer overflows were found in various stdlib functions of GNU
libc (strtod, strtof, strtold, strtod_l and related routines). If an application, using the affected stdlib functions,
did not perform user-level sanitization of provided inputs, a local attacker could use this flaw to cause such an
application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the application.
Upstream bug report:
Upstream patch (might not be the final one):
Could you allocate a CVE id for this?
Thank you && Regards, Jan.
