Security Vulnerability in glibc DNS
It's a really bad one.

I see that a critical "GNU cpio" update has been released: 2.11+dfsg-1ubuntu1.2 (http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/trusty/main/updates/cpio).
The Linux Mint update manager says that it is "Not Authenticated". Suffice to say I have not installed this.
Does anybody know if this is related to the recent Linux Mint hack? Their official website (http://www.linuxmint.com/) is still down.
