Fedora Update Notification
2021-09-29 00:16:07.673232

Name        : glibc
Product     : Fedora 35
Version     : 2.34
Release     : 6.fc35
URL         : https://www.gnu.org/software/glibc/
Summary     : The GNU libc libraries
Description :
The glibc package contains standard libraries which are used by
multiple programs on the system. In order to save disk space and
memory, as well as to make upgrading easier, common system code is
kept in one place and shared between programs. This particular package
contains the most important sets of shared libraries: the standard C
library and the standard math library. Without these two libraries, a
Linux system will not function.

Update Information:

This is a regular glibc maintenance update. It addresses a regression in
`pthread_cancel` (spurious `ESRCH` errors) and fixes a bug where tools like
`top` would not show all CPUs in the system. A minor security issue in the
rarely-used `mq_notify` function is addressed (CVE-2021-38604).  Furthermore,
the `C.UTF-8` locale is replaced by its upstream implementation.
