The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the keepalived package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Heap-based buffer overflow vulnerability in extract_status_code() function in lib/html.c that parses HTTP status code returned from web server allows malicious web server or man-in-the-middle attacker pretending to be a web server to cause either a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code on keepalived load balancer.(CVE-2018-19115)

- keepalived 2.0.8 used mode 0666 when creating new temporary files upon a call to PrintData or PrintStats, potentially leaking sensitive information.(CVE-2018-19045)
