Description

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

- In ncurses 6.0, there is a stack-based buffer overflow in the fmt_entry function. A crafted input will lead to a remote arbitrary code execution attack.(CVE-2017-10684)
