Environment

6.1.1.

Even though the GHOST bug (CVE-2015-0235) is probably not exploitable on Virtualization Manager (VMan), you may still want to update glibc to a version which does not contain the vulnerability. To do so, complete either of the following procedures.

Option A: Using the rpm command

  1. Log in to the appliance using SSH.
  2. Run the following commands to download the updated files:
    cd /tmp/
    wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5/..._11.1.i686.rpm
    wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5/...1.1.x86_64.rpm
    wget http://mirror.centos.org/centos-5/5/...1.1.x86_64.rpm
  3. Run the following command to install the update:
    sudo rpm -Uvh glibc-2.5-123.el5_11.1.x86_64.rpm glibc-2.5-123.el5_11.1.i686.rpm glibc-common-2.5-123.el5_11.1.x86_64.rpm
If the Virtualization Manager appliance is not connected to the internet, download the files on a different system and transport them to the appliance, for example through SCP.

Option B: Using the yum command

  1. Log in to the appliance using SSH.
  2. Run the following command:
    sudo yum update glibc -y
