Subject: the other glibc issue


Not sure why solardesigner didn't post this himself, but he tweetet
glibc "getaddrinfo() writes DNS queries to random file descriptors
under high load"
… "Fixed in 2.20", reopened, CVE?

The corresponding bug title says most of it. It's supposed to be fixed
in glibc 2.20, however there is a comment saying it is not.
