Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

According to the version of the sudo package installed, the EulerOS
installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerability :

- It was found that the original fix for CVE-2017-1000367
was incomplete. A flaw was found in the way sudo parsed
tty information from the process status file in the
proc filesystem. A local user with privileges to
execute commands via sudo could use this flaw to
escalate their privileges to root. (CVE-2017-1000368)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the EulerOS security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
