glibc getaddrinfo Buffer Overflow Verifier

This module executes a program designed to check for a buffer overflow in glibc's getaddrinfo function. Multiple stack-based buffer overflows in the send_dg and send_vc functions in the libresolv library in the GNU C Library allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted DNS response that triggers a call to the getaddrinfo function with the AF_UNSPEC or AF_INET6 address family.
