Medium Nessus Plugin ID 106764
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the dhcp packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- It was found that the DHCP daemon did not properly clean up closed OMAPI connections in certain cases. A remote attacker able to connect to the OMAPI port could use this flaw to exhaust file descriptors in the DHCP daemon, leading to a denial of service in the OMAPI functionality. (CVE-2017-3144)
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.
