EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : perl (EulerOS-SA-2019-1864)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128916
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the perl packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The (1) S_reghop3, (2) S_reghop4, and (3) S_reghopmaybe3 functions in regexec.c in Perl before 5.24.0 allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via crafted utf-8 data, as demonstrated by 'a\x80.'(CVE-2015-8853)
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 perl package.
