Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- A race condition was found in the Linux kernel, present
since v3.14-rc1 through v4.12. The race happens between
threads of inotify_handle_event() and vfs_rename()
while running the rename operation against the same
file. As a result of the race the next slab data or the
slab's free list pointer can be corrupted with
attacker-controlled data. (CVE-2017-7533)

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.
