Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- The qemu-nbd server in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator), when
built with the Network Block Device (NBD) Server
support, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
service (segmentation fault and server crash) by
leveraging failure to ensure that all initialization
occurs before talking to a client in the nbd_negotiate
function.(CVE-2017-9524)

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.
