Use CVE-2014-4043. (If it were the case that the relevant POSIX interpretation happened last month, and a new glibc release implementing that interpretation simply wasn't ready yet, then probably a CVE ID couldn't be assigned. But this seems like almost 14 years.) - -- CVE assignment team, MITRE CVE Numbering Authority M/S M300 202 Burlington Road, Bedford, MA 01730 USA [ PGP key available through http://cve.mitre.org/cve/request_id.html ] -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.14 (SunOS) iQEcBAEBAgAGBQJTmo73AAoJEKllVAevmvmsKL0H/2U08DxCZqL22H6nZaAyDlhF wYIokK8r1ucQGaDzXA5j32w+S4RoT8ALsxbwqjCFYEg6cFsjE+ojPWS0V0uIvdsI TAUjAY7+HEci8V/u0Ii2G9BDs5AWdIWlTtjLOG+o+PqRvGQKatlGyzr2LY+9jbXl Ys9VnQQL+1U5uTfke2Sj3rfhFdgsTGGtwHf/NZP6nU3mYgUpe99g7GteOxiYO5+f i81mnE2rvgjwiAShpOtooOHElBRsK82icowO6tVW1TjRM3yqaFBWF588Blhkress vmrmT/K2+XY5h2FlTPaezUmmVcOEPwxiIwJ21L8T4RWXEv7i8LAwShS6SFwIB5o= =tUte -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
