EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : log4j (EulerOS-SA-2017-1213)
High Nessus Plugin ID 103071
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the log4j package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- It was found that when using remote logging with log4j socket server the log4j server would deserialize any log event received via TCP or UDP. An attacker could use this flaw to send a specially crafted log event that, during deserialization, would execute arbitrary code in the context of the logger 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected log4j package.
