The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- A NULL pointer dereference was found in the way the
_nc_parse_entry function parses terminfo data for compilation. An attacker able to provide specially crafted terminfo data could use this flaw to crash the application parsing it.(CVE-2018-10754)
