The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.
According to the version of the parallels-server-bm-release /
vzkernel / etc packages installed, the Virtuozzo installation on the
remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- A flaw was found in the way memory was being allocated
on the stack for user space binaries. If heap (or
different memory region) and stack memory regions were
adjacent to each other, an attacker could use this flaw
to jump over the stack guard gap, cause controlled
memory corruption on process stack or the adjacent
memory region, and thus increase their privileges on
the system. This is a kernel-side mitigation which
increases the stack guard gap size from one page to 1
MiB to make successful exploitation of this issue more
