Applies to: All versions of Centrify DirectControl and Centrify DirectAudit


The CVE-2015-7547 is considered to have critical impact as reported in and

Is Centrify DirectContorl or Centrify DirectAudit affected?
Is there a patch can be applied to fix this bug? 

To summarize, the issue is that is part of glibc package. Centrify DirectControl / DirectAUdit does not ship - but use the one on the OS, and ship which is NOT part of glibc.
In other words, this is the issue with OS base, NOT CDC / CDA. Once the OS is patched, the new on the OS will be used. (adclient,dad,curl,dzdo,etc).
It is advised to apply the patch from OS vendor as soon as possible to minimize the exposure.
Additionally since CDC / CDA does not support IPv6, and thus do not make query for AAAA records, but the CLI like curl does. As a result, it is also recommended to apply the glibc patch from OS vendor as soon as possible.
