New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- GIT version 2.15.1 and earlier contains a Input Validation Error vulnerability in Client that can result in problems including messing up terminal configuration to RCE. This attack appear to be exploitable via The user must interact with a malicious git server, (or have their traffic modified in a MITM attack).(CVE-2018-1000021)

- Git before 2.10.5, 2.11.x before 2.11.4, 2.12.x before 2.12.5, 2.13.x before 2.13.6, and 2.14.x before 2.14.2 uses unsafe Perl scripts to support subcommands such as cvsserver, which allows attackers to execute arbitrary OS commands via shell metacharacters in a module name.
The vulnerable code is reachable via git-shell even without CVS support.(CVE-2017-14867)

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 git packages.
