Synopsis :

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

authentication required. An attacker could use this
flaw to access a VNC server with an empty VNC password
without any authentication.(CVE-2016-5008)
