Hi all,

As reported by Google on their security blog recently,
a major security whole in glibc was discovered.

Affected systems: All NGCP versions

Please ensure you have appropriate Debian security repository enabled:
 - jessie based mr4.2.1+
> deb https://debian.sipwise.com/debian-security/ jessie-security main contrib non-free
 - wheezy based 3.0, 3.1, mr3.2.* - mr4.1.* (including mr3.8.* LTS)
> deb http://debian.sipwise.com/debian-security/ wheezy-security main contrib non-free
 - squeeze based 2.8 LTS
> deb http://debian.sipwise.com/debian/ squeeze-lts main

(you can use other non-Sipwise mirrors if you trust them,
while please verify you have latest/fixed packages versions there).

Ensure all the packages from glibc/eglibc sources are installed to the
fixed version. See the list of fixed versions here:

All the Sipwise software are dynamically linked against glibc,
so all the services restart are necessary.

At the same time Sipwise doesn't have the information about the
statically linked software which can be installed on your servers,
so it is highly recommended to update all packages to the latest
available version:

>   apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && \
>   ngcp-update-db-schema && ngcp-update-cfg-schema && \
>   ngcpcfg apply "applying changes for CVE-2015-7547"

NOTE: please do not forget to update customtt if you have them before
applying new changes!
