Description

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

- The mpatch_apply function in mpatch.c in Mercurial before 4.6.1 incorrectly proceeds in cases where the fragment start is past the end of the original data, aka OVE-20180430-0004.(CVE-2018-13346)
