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

- Directory Traversal with ../ sequences occurs in AccountsService before 0.6.50 because of an insufficient path check in user_change_icon_file_authorized_cb() in user.c.(CVE-2018-14036)
