The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- The allocate_elf function in common.h in elfutils before 0.168 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a crafted ELF file, which triggers a memory allocation failure.(CVE-2016-10254)

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 elfutils package.
