Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- It was discovered that the sudo noexec restriction could have been bypassed if application run via sudo executed system(), popen(), or wordexp() C library functions with a user-supplied argument. A local user permitted to run such application via sudo with noexec restriction could use these flaws to execute arbitrary commands with elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-7076)

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.
