New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the tcpdump package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- In tcpdump 4.9.2, a stack-based buffer over-read exists in the print_prefix function of print-hncp.c via crafted packet data because of missing initialization.(CVE-2018-19519)

- tcpdump 4.9.2 has a heap-based buffer over-read related to aoe_print in print-aoe.c and lookup_emem in addrtoname.c.(CVE-2017-16808)

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.

Solution

Update the affected tcpdump packages.
