EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.1 : glibc (EulerOS-SA-2018-1332)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118420
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 :
- stdlib/canonicalize.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc
or libc6) 2.27 and earlier, when processing very long
pathname arguments to the realpath function, could
encounter an integer overflow on 32-bit architectures,
leading to a stack-based buffer overflow and,
potentially, arbitrary code execution.(CVE-2018-11236)
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 glibc package.
