Description :

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

- An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way Expat
processed certain input. A remote attacker could send
specially crafted XML that, when parsed by an
application using the Expat library, would cause that
application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary
code with the permission of the user running the
application.(CVE-2016-0718)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
