EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : libevent (EulerOS-SA-2018-1164)
High Nessus Plugin ID 110740
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the libevent package installed, the
EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following
- Multiple integer overflows in the evbuffer API in
Libevent 1.4.x before 1.4.15, 2.0.x before 2.0.22, and
2.1.x before 2.1.5-beta allow context-dependent
attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have
other unspecified impact via 'insanely large inputs' to
the (1) evbuffer_add, (2) evbuffer_expand, or (3)
bufferevent_write function, which triggers a heap-based
buffer overflow or an infinite loop.(CVE-2014-6272)
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 libevent package.
