EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.0 : systemd (EulerOS-SA-2018-1243)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117552
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the systemd packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- In systemd prior to 234 a race condition exists between .mount and .automount units such that automount requests from kernel may not be serviced by systemd resulting in kernel holding the mountpoint and any processes that try to use said mount will hang. A race condition like this may lead to denial of service, until mount points are unmounted.(CVE-2018-1049)
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 systemd package.
