ELBA-2012-1178 - glibc bug fix update

Release Date:2012-10-16


- Previously, if the nscd daemon received a CNAME (Canonical Name) record as a
response to a DNS (Domain Name System) query, the cached DNS entry adopted the
TTL (Time to Live) value of the underlying 'A' or 'AAAA' response. This caused
the nscd daemon to wait for an unexpectedly long time before reloading the DNS
entry. With this update, nscd uses the shortest TTL from the response as the TTL
value for the entire record. As a result, DNS entries are reloaded as expected
in this scenario. (BZ#846063)
