EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : libsoup (EulerOS-SA-2017-1210)

High Nessus Plugin ID 103068


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- A stack-based buffer overflow flaw was discovered within the HTTP processing of libsoup. A remote attacker could exploit this flaw to cause a crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code by sending a specially crafted HTTP request to a server using the libsoup HTTP server functionality or by tricking a user into connecting to a malicious HTTP server with an application using the libsoup HTTP client functionality. (CVE-2017-2885)

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 libsoup package.
