You wish to verify if Symantec Protection Engine for Linux is specifically affected by the GHOST vulnerability that affects various Linux versions.
The GHOST vulnerability affects teh Glibc library and any components that depend on it. This includes SPE.
The solution is to update your OS to ensure that Glibc is no longer vulnerable. This can be done using the "Yum update" command. Once Glibc is updated, the Operating System is no longer vulnerable to GHOST, and SPE will continue to function normally.
