New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the docker-engine package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- A flaw was found in the way runc handled system file descriptors when running containers. A malicious container could use this flaw to overwrite contents of the runc binary and consequently run arbitrary commands on the container host system. (CVE-2019-5736)

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.
