The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the freetype packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- FreeType 2 before 2017-03-24 has an out-of-bounds write caused by a heap-based buffer overflow related to the t1_decoder_parse_charstrings function in psaux/t1decode.c.(CVE-2017-8105)
