Hello, can you tell us something about new cve with glibc?
Does it require a reboot?

As far as I understand you have to restart vulnerable services: exim, dovecot, apache/litepseed, cpanel, postgresql, proftpd .
Other like inetd, tcp_wrappers, rsyslogd,mysql/mariadb are all considered safe - but should be easy to restart if you feel like it.

If server restart is a pain then you may try to cheat here - udate glibc then take services that are still handling \'old\' library:

lsof | grep libc | grep deleted

If we are talking about cpanel - be sure to stop/start apache as by default it will do graceful and will not reload new library.
