CVE-2013-7423

Priority
Description
The send_dg function in resolv/res_send.c in GNU C Library (aka glibc or
libc6) before 2.20 does not properly reuse file descriptors, which allows
remote attackers to send DNS queries to unintended locations via a large
number of requests that trigger a call to the getaddrinfo function.
