EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.0 : gnupg2 (EulerOS-SA-2018-1333)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 118421
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the gnupg2 package installed, the EulerOS
Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the
following vulnerability :
- A data validation flaw was found in the way gnupg
processes file names during decryption and signature
validation. An attacker may be able to inject messages
into gnupg verbose message logging which may have the
potential to bypass the integrity of signature
authentication mechanisms and could have other
unintended consequences if applications take action(s)
based on parsed verbose gnupg output. (CVE-2018-12020)
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 gnupg2 package.
