Do we need to wait for a RASPBIAN upgrade to be available here?


I ran: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo reboot ... but I don't think I saw any explicit glibc patch come through

According to the Debian Security Tracker entry for this vulnerability, updates for glibc/eglibc/libc6 will fix this issue:

  • wheezy: 2.13-38+deb7u10
  • jessie: 2.19-18+deb8u3

These are available for Raspian as well. A simple

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

should secure your box.

To verify the version of your glibc, run

apt-cache show libc6 | grep -i "version:"
