Medium Nessus Plugin ID 128933
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the git packages installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- Git through 2.14.2 mishandles layers of tree objects, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via a crafted repository, aka a Git bomb. This can also have an impact of disk consumption; however, an affected process typically would not survive its attempt to build the data structure in memory before writing to disk.(CVE-2017-15298)
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 git package.
