EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : openssh (EulerOS-SA-2017-1138)

High Nessus Plugin ID 102225


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- The shared memory manager (associated with pre-authentication compression) in sshd in OpenSSH before 7.4 does not ensure that a bounds check is enforced by all compilers, which might allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging access to a sandboxed privilege-separation process, related to the m_zback and m_zlib data structures.(CVE-2016-10012)

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 openssh package.
