EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : unixODBC (EulerOS-SA-2019-2267)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 130729


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- In unixODBC before 2.3.5, there is a buffer overflow in the unicode_to_ansi_copy() function in DriverManager/__info.c.(CVE-2018-7409)

- The SQLWriteFileDSN function in odbcinst/SQLWriteFileDSN.c in unixODBC 2.3.5 has strncpy arguments in the wrong order, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact.(CVE-2018-7485)

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.


Update the affected unixODBC packages.
