It looks as if the alloca issue was introduced at the same time as the malloc-related overflow: http://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commitdiff;h=5358d026c74 So perhaps one CVE is enough for glibc bugs 14552 and 14547 because the problems are similar and affect the same versions. -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security Team
