EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.2.2 : pcre (EulerOS-SA-2020-1485)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 135647

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- Integer overflow in the _IO_wstr_overflow function in libio/wstrops.c in the GNU C Library (aka glibc or libc6) before 2.22 allows context-dependent attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via vectors related to computing a size in bytes, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.(CVE-2015-8393)

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 pcre package.
