An updated nss_db package is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The nss_db package provides a plugin which allows libc, and in turnapplications, to read information about users, groups, and other informationfrom local database files which might otherwise need to be read from theunindexed text-like databases which are typically stored under the /etcdirectory on a host, or from remote servers.This update fixes the following bug:* Due to a programming error, the plugin provided by the nss_db package leakedthe memory used to hold a copy of a database’s file name whenever an applicationcaused a database to be opened. Among the libc functions back-ended by nss_dbwhich attempted to open databases (and thus could leak if they succeeded) were:getaliasbyname()getgrgid()getgrnam()getprotobyname()getprotobynumber()getpwnam()getpwuid()getrpcbyname()getrpcbynumber()getservbyname()getservbyport()getspnam()getgrouplist()setaliasent()setetherent()setgrent()setnetgrent()setprotoent()setpwent()setrpcent()setservent()setspent()A patch has been provided to fix this bug, and debugging оr tracing no longerdemonstrates the memory leak when calling the above listed functions.(BZ#1088776)Users of nss_db are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix thisbug.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released erratarelevant to your system have been applied.This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how touse the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available athttps://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)
