SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the libnl3 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- An integer overflow leading to a heap-buffer overflow was found in the libnl library. An attacker could use this flaw to cause an application compiled with libnl to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code in the context of the user running such an application.
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.
