Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- An integer overflow in the implementation of the posix_memalign in memalign functions in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) 2.26 and earlier could cause these functions to return a pointer to a heap area that is too small, potentially leading to heap corruption.(CVE-2018-6485)

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.
