I recently discovered three integer overflow issues in the glibc 
memory allocator functions pvalloc, valloc and 
posix_memalign/memalign/aligned_alloc. These issues cause a large 
allocation size to wrap around and cause a wrong sized allocation
and heap corruption. The issues are fixed in glibc mainline.

The relevant glibc bugzilla entries are here:



CVE MERGE, same researcher, version and vuln type.

Please use CVE-2013-4332  for this issue.

Kurt, vendors, et al. -

I've consolidated upstream fixes for these three integer
overflow vulnerabilities in a port to glibc 2.17 and placed
it here:


Upstream fixes:
