EulerOS Virtualization 2.5.1 : patch (EulerOS-SA-2018-1378)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 119069
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the patch package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- GNU Patch version 2.7.6 contains an input validation vulnerability when processing patch files, specifically the EDITOR_PROGRAM invocation (using ed) can result in code execution. This attack appear to be exploitable via a patch file processed via the patch utility. This is similar to FreeBSD's CVE-2015-1418 however although they share a common ancestry the code bases have diverged over time.(CVE-2018-1000156)
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 patch package.
