The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
According to the version of the wget package installed, the EulerOS
installation on the remote host is affected by the following
- It was found that wget used a file name provided by the
server for the downloaded file when following a HTTP
redirect to a FTP server resource. This could cause
wget to create a file with a different name than
expected, possibly allowing the server to execute
arbitrary code on the client.(CVE-2016-4971)
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.
