Patch: Debian glibc

Debian has released an updated version of glibc to fix a problem with its previous glibc patch, which created a potential divide-by-zero problem in the code library.

The patch was originally devised to fix an integer overflow in the RPC library, which could be exploited to gain unauthorized root access to software linking to this code.

More information on the problem, as well as the patch, are available on the Debian web site.
