Leaky elbow that's connected to the stack

Hello all, I have a leaky elbow in my basement, and i was wondering how i could fix it?

The elbow is directly attached to the stack, so i'm not really sure what do to. Should i just put gobs of glue on it?

Here is a pic:

It's on the bottom part of the elbow. It doesn't leak a ton of water but enough. There's also a leak up top of the pipe that i'm trying to figureout where it's coming from. That drain is for the dishwasher, sink, and something else that i'm not sure of.

I don't think the elbow is cracked.. It's from the joint. FYI the home is 21 years old.

Thanks for all the help!
