EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : ruby (EulerOS-SA-2019-1868)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128920
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the ruby packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The openssl gem for Ruby uses the same initialization vector (IV) in GCM Mode (aes-*-gcm) when the IV is set before the key, which makes it easier for context-dependent attackers to bypass the encryption protection mechanism.(CVE-2016-7798)
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 ruby package.
