This script is Copyright (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description :

According to the versions of the mercurial package installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- It was discovered that Mercurial failed to properly
check Git sub-repository URLs. A Mercurial repository
that includes a Git sub-repository with a specially
crafted URL could cause Mercurial to execute arbitrary
code. (CVE-2016-3068)

- It was discovered that the Mercurial convert extension
failed to sanitize special characters in Git repository
names. A Git repository with a specially crafted name
could cause Mercurial to execute arbitrary code when
the Git repository was converted to a Mercurial
repository. (CVE-2016-3069)

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.
