EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : curl (EulerOS-SA-2019-1751)
Low Nessus Plugin ID 126878
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the curl packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The ourWriteOut function in tool_writeout.c in curl 7.53.1 might allow physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information from process memory in opportunistic circumstances by reading a workstation screen during use of a --write-out argument ending in a '%' character, which leads to a heap-based buffer over-read.(CVE-2017-7407)
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 curl package.
