[ELDK] ELDK 5.4 and 'GHOST' glibc bug

Hi all,

I use ELDK v. 5.4 for a PowerPC (MPC5200B) target.  Due to [1], upgrading to 5.5.x is not an option for me.

It appears, though, that the glibc coming with 5.4 is vulnerable by CVE-2015-0235 (glibc 'GHOST' gethostbyname buffer overflow; [2]).

Before downloading 5.6 - does it have both the gcc/PowerPC glitch *and* the GHOST bug fixed?  Or will you provide an update for 5.4?
