SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the glibc packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The nss_dns implementation of getnetbyname in GNU C Library (aka glibc) before 2.21, when the DNS backend in the Name Service Switch configuration is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) by sending a positive answer while a network name is being process.(CVE-2014-9402)
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.
