Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the kernel packages installed, the
EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by
the following vulnerability :

- It was found that paravirt_patch_call/jump() functions
in the arch/x86/kernel/paravirt.c in the Linux kernel
mishandles certain indirect calls, which makes it
easier for attackers to conduct Spectre-v2 attacks
against paravirtualized guests.(CVE-2018-15594)
