comment GHOST glibc vulnerability (CVE-2015-0235): is it required restart a server after glibc upgrade?
Static linking is probably rare though, given the interactions of DNS functions with NSS,glibc and the historical biases of the former glibc maintainer.

sysvinit is safe (no DNS calls, and often but not always statically linked too). systemd appears to have a resolver all of its own. In my experience replacing libraries used by long-running processes can cause instabilities. Reboot, and be happy.

The sysinternal pendmoves tool is an easy way to do this from a command prompt too.

comment How to get the OpenSSL version in a Tomcat 6 installation
OpenSSL is not part of Tomcat, but the OpenSSL library is included in the Tomcat 6 windows binary packages available from apache.org. The library code is integrated into a Tomcat dll, there is no openssl.exe included.

comment How to find the matching records from 2 files in unix
The (rather grandiose) term is "autovivification", also present though in different ways in perl.
