EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.2 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2018-1352)
High Nessus Plugin ID 118440
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the kernel packages installed, the
EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerability :
- A flaw named FragmentSmack was found in the way the
Linux kernel handled reassembly of fragmented IPv4 and
IPv6 packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to
trigger time and calculation expensive fragment
reassembly algorithm by sending specially crafted
packets which could lead to a CPU saturation and hence
a denial of service on the system.(CVE-2018-5391)
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 kernel package.
