Description :

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

disclosure. A local user with sudo access to a
restricted program that uses readline could use this
flaw to read content from specially formatted files
with elevated privileges provided by
sudo.(CVE-2016-7091)
