EulerOS 2.0 SP8 : python3 (EulerOS-SA-2019-2091)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 129450
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the python3 packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- urllib in Python 2.x through 2.7.16 supports the local_file: scheme, which makes it easier for remote attackers to bypass protection mechanisms that blacklist file: URIs, as demonstrated by triggering a urllib.urlopen('local_file:///etc/passwd') call.(CVE-2019-9948)
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 python3 package.
