SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the flex package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- Heap-based buffer overflow in the yy_get_next_buffer function in Flex before 2.6.1 might allow context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors involving num_to_read.(CVE-2016-6354)
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.
