How to fix?

Upgrade Centos:8 glibc to version 0:2.28-164.el8 or higher.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream glibc package and not the glibc package as distributed by Centos:8. See How to fix? for Centos:8 relevant fixed versions and status.

The mq_notify function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc) versions 2.32 and 2.33 has a use-after-free. It may use the notification thread attributes object (passed through its struct sigevent parameter) after it has been freed by the caller, leading to a denial of service (application crash) or possibly unspecified other impact.
