The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way
NSS parsed certain ASN.1 structures. An attacker could

which, when parsed by NSS, could cause it to crash, or
execute arbitrary code, using the permissions of the
user running an application compiled against the NSS
library.(CVE-2016-1950)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
