CVE: CVE-2015-1472 , CVE-2015-1473
Under certain conditions wscanf can allocate too little memory for the to-be-scanned arguments and overflow the allocated buffer (CVE-2015-1472). The incorrect use of "__libc_use_alloca (newsize)" caused a different (and weaker) policy to be enforced which could allow a denial of service attack (CVE-2015-1473).
