At least 5.4.7 was officially released by HJ Lu (see the attached posting).
So an upgrade at least to 5.4.7 seems to be in order.

Hi, Gals and Guys,
This is the public release of the Linux C library 5.4.7. Please read
the ChangeLog for details regarding changes/bug fixes.
The shared libraries are now compiled with -g1 which can provide
minimum information when core dump happens. You can strip
libc.so.5.4.7 if you want.
Due to the new, improved locale, the Linux C library 5.4.7 is binary
compatible with libc 5.3.12 but not vice versa. The binaries
compiled/linked with libc.so.5.4.7 may not run with libc.so.5.3.12.
You may need to regenerate locale files for the new locale in libc
5.4.7 if you use locales other tha C/POSIX which are the defaults.
There are many security bug fixes. Please consult ChangeLog for
details. Please let me know if there are more security bugs remains.
The primary FTP sites for the compiler/C library are:
