EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : curl (EulerOS-SA-2018-1040)

High Nessus Plugin ID 106768


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- The FTP wildcard function in curl and libcurl before 7.57.0 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (out-of-bounds read and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact via a string that ends with an '[' character.(CVE-2017-8817)

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 curl package.
