New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


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

- X.Org X11 libXtst runtime librarySecurity Fix(es):Multiple integer overflows in libXtst before 1.2.3 allow remote X servers to trigger out-of-bounds memory access operations by leveraging the lack of range checks.(CVE-2016-7951) libXtst before 1.2.3 allows remote X servers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop) via a reply in the (1) XRecordStartOfData, (2) XRecordEndOfData, or (3) XRecordClientDied category without a client sequence and with attached data.(CVE-2016-7952)

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 libXtst packages.
