Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the ppp packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- Buffer overflow in the rc_mksid function in plugins/radius/util.c in Paul's PPP Package (ppp) 2.4.6 and earlier, when the PID for pppd is greater than 65535, allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via a start accounting message to the RADIUS server.(CVE-2015-3310)

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
