Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- A flaw was found where authconfig could configure sssd
in a way that treats existing and non-existing logins
differently, leaking information on existence of a
user. An attacker with physical or network access to
the machine could enumerate users via a timing attack.

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
