New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the less package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The is_utf8_well_formed function in GNU less before 475 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via malformed UTF-8 characters, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.(backport-less-CVE-2014-9488-utf8-overflow.patch)

- The is_utf8_well_formed function in GNU less before 475 allows remote attackers to have unspecified impact via malformed UTF-8 characters, which triggers an out-of-bounds read.(CVE-2014-9488)

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 less packages.
