How to fix?

There is no fixed version for Ubuntu:18.04 glibc.

NVD Description

Note: Versions mentioned in the description apply only to the upstream glibc package and not the glibc package as distributed by Ubuntu. See How to fix? for Ubuntu:18.04 relevant fixed versions and status.

The pop_fail_stack function in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (assertion failure and application crash) via vectors related to extended regular expression processing.
