Summary0014762: /etc/host.conf now reports "nospoof" as being invalid
DescriptionSome customers have had the

nospoof on

value set within their /etc/host.conf file for a long time. Apparently this wasn't fully functional or never completed? And seems to have been removed from libc upon updating to 7.5.

Users that have this setting, are now getting:

/etc/host.conf: line 6: bad command `nospoof on'

with many of the commands they run. I see that glibc was updated last night.

It looks like CentOS may need to update the following packages that provide the man-page for host.conf:

CentOS just rebuilds what is shipped as part of RHEL. To get this fixed/changed you will need to get Redhat to do it. If you haven't already, then raise a ticket on in the relevant section and report it there. When or if RH fix it then CentOS will pick up the change.
