EulerOS 2.0 SP2 : apr-util (EulerOS-SA-2020-1639)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 137481

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- The overflow protection in Expat is removed by compilers with certain optimization settings, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via crafted XML data. NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2015-1283 and CVE-2015-2716.(CVE-2016-4472)

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 apr-util package.
