Easy Mitigiation
If your company keeps up with leveraging current distros then you might not be in danger anyway. The most recent versions of glibc are not vulnerable. These are a product of more current distros and if your enterprise maintains a streamlined patch and change management process you could be in the clear. 

However, it is good to check for saftey. I believe that Nessus and Qualys vulnerability scanners have the ability to detect this.

open-source bug exposure
It's fascinating to me how, in the wake of Heartbleed and Shellshock, every single moderate vulnerability in a significant open-source project is getting significant attention.

Which perhaps is a good thing, considering how pre-Shellshock, the over-pious open-source zealots would persistently insist that open source was always superior and safer and perfect and could brush your teeth while baking bread and teaching you how to play jazz piano.

Re: open-source bug exposure
Good points, @Joe. Here's a good piece by Jai Vijayan about the open-source code problem for enterprises: http://www.darkreading.com/growing-open-source-use-heightens-enterprise-security-risks-/d/d-id/1318767?

Re: open-source bug exposure
I love the defense of flawed open source so many throw up that's basically, "Don't blame the developers!  They're just six unpaid guys who live in a trailer park, and one of them doesn't even have thumbs."

Would you feel the same way about medical malpractice if the hospital's lawyers were like, "Come on, don't blame that poor old surgeon; he's blind! Which makes it really hard for him to find his Parkinson's medication!"?

People want solutions that work satisfactorily.  End of story.

Re: open-source bug exposure
Good point, @Joe Stanganelli. But outside the issue of secure application software development is the issue of patching, especially in this particular instance where there a patch is available for all of the affected Linux systems.

How Machine Learning, AI & Deep Learning Improve Cybersecurity
Machine intelligence is influencing all aspects of cybersecurity. Organizations are implementing AI-based security to analyze event data using ML models that identify attack patterns and increase automation. Before security teams can take advantage of AI and ML tools, they need to know what is possible. This report covers: -How to assess the vendor's AI/ML claims -Defining success criteria for AI/ML implementations -Challenges when implementing AI
