EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : chrony (EulerOS-SA-2017-1158)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102245


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- chrony before 1.31.2 and 2.x before 2.2.1 do not verify peer associations of symmetric keys when authenticating packets, which might allow remote attackers to conduct impersonation attacks via an arbitrary trusted key, aka a 'skeleton key.'(CVE-2016-1567)

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 chrony package.
