EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : glibc (EulerOS-SA-2017-1268)

High Nessus Plugin ID 104293

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the glibc packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.27 contains an off-by-one error leading to a heap-based buffer overflow in the glob function in glob.c, related to the processing of home directories using the ~ operator followed by a long string.(CVE-2017-15670)

- The glob function in glob.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.27 contains a buffer overflow during unescaping of user names with the ~ operator.(CVE-2017-15804)

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.

Solution

Update the affected glibc packages.
