This happens with the numeric conversions (%d, %f and others), and includes valid numbers (ISO C allows crashes or worse on invalid inputs, but glibc is buggy even by this standard). The first glibc version which received the fix for this bug is 2.15. The bug was reported in 2011, so it should receive a CVE-2011-XXXX name. -- Florian Weimer / Red Hat Product Security
