Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- The shared memory manager (associated with
pre-authentication compression) in sshd in OpenSSH
before 7.4 does not ensure that a bounds check is
enforced by all compilers, which might allows local
users to gain privileges by leveraging access to a
sandboxed privilege-separation process, related to the
m_zback and m_zlib data structures.(CVE-2016-10012)

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.
