SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the perl packages installed, the EulerOS
installation on the remote host is affected by the following
- It was found that the Archive::Tar module did not
properly sanitize symbolic links when extracting tar
archives. An attacker, able to provide a specially
crafted archive for processing, could use this flaw to
write or overwrite arbitrary files in the context of
the Perl interpreter.(CVE-2018-12015)
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.
