EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : zsh (EulerOS-SA-2018-1209)

High Nessus Plugin ID 110873


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- A buffer overflow flaw was found in the zsh shell auto-complete functionality. A local, unprivileged user can create a specially crafted directory path which leads to code execution in the context of the user who tries to use auto-complete to traverse the before mentioned path. If the user affected is privileged, this leads to privilege escalation.(CVE-2018-1083)

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 zsh package.
