[SECURITY] [DLA 230-1] eglibc security update

Package        : eglibc
Version        : 2.11.3-4+deb6u6
CVE ID         : CVE-2015-1781

Arjun Shankar of Red Hat discovered that gethostbyname_r and related
functions compute the size of an input buffer incorrectly if the passed-in
buffer is misaligned. This results in a buffer overflow.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been
fixed in version 2.11.3-4+deb6u6.
