Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102244
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the qemu-kvm packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The qemu-nbd server in QEMU (aka Quick Emulator), when built with the Network Block Device (NBD) Server support, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (segmentation fault and server crash) by leveraging failure to ensure that all initialization occurs before talking to a client in the nbd_negotiate function.(CVE-2017-9524)
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected qemu-kvm package.
