Virtuozzo 7 : vmauth (VZA-2017-018)

Synopsis :

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description :

According to the version of the vmauth package installed, the
Virtuozzo installation on the remote host is affected by the
following vulnerability :

- Incorrect checking of locked VM accounts in Virtuozzo
SDK allowed one to use any password to log in to a VM
with such a locked account via a third-party program
using Virtuozzo SDK that was launched on host. Other
login methods, e.g., via SSH, were not affected.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Virtuozzo security advisory.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as
possible without introducing additional issues.
