The article, I refere to, did only mention "libc" and they used the terminus
"Linux/UNIX", and this is usually associted by that Linux-folks with the rest 
of the
UNIX-alike world after their precious Linux.

I followed then the explanation of the CVE and that stated very clearly, that 
it is GNU

appliances utilizing Linux and the penetrated glic. :-)
