EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : gnutls (EulerOS-SA-2017-1111)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 100722


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- GnuTLS before 2017-02-20 has an out-of-bounds write caused by an integer overflow and heap-based buffer overflow related to the cdk_pkt_read function in opencdk/read-packet.c. This issue (which is a subset of the vendor's GNUTLS-SA-2017-3 report) is fixed in 3.5.10.(CVE-2017-7869)

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.


Update the affected gnutls package.
