    Package        : eglibc
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-0475
    
    Stephane Chazelas discovered that the GNU C library, glibc, processed
    ".." path segments in locale-related environment variables, possibly
    allowing attackers to circumvent intended restrictions, such as
    ForceCommand in OpenSSH, assuming that they can supply crafted locale
    settings.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.13-38+deb7u3.
    
    This update also includes changes previously scheduled for the next
    wheezy point release as version 2.13-38+deb7u2.  See the Debian
    changelog for details.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your eglibc packages.
