Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

- It was found that util-linux's libblkid library did not
properly handle Extended Boot Record (EBR) partitions
when reading MS-DOS partition tables. An attacker with
physical USB access to a protected machine could insert
a storage device with a specially crafted partition
table that could, for example, trigger an infinite loop
in systemd-udevd, resulting in a denial of service on
that machine.(CVE-2016-5011)

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.
