You need to update your Linux server's installation of
glibc immediately to protect it from a stack-based buffer overflow which was discovered on February 16, 2016.
You only need to perform this update if you have a VPS or dedicated server. Customers with shared hosting accounts do not need to do anything.
For $79, GoWebsite will update
glibc for you. To buy this service, give us a call at (480) 624-2500.
