Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- It was found that evince did not properly sanitize the
command line which is run to untar Comic Book Tar (CBT)
files, thereby allowing command injection. A specially
crafted CBT file, when opened by evince or
evince-thumbnailer, could execute arbitrary commands in
the context of the evince program. (CVE-2017-1000083)

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.
