critical Nessus Plugin ID 140968


The remote EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the libXrender package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization for ARM 64 installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The XRenderQueryFilters function in libXrender before 0.9.10 allows remote X servers to trigger out-of-bounds write operations via vectors involving filter name lengths.(CVE-2016-7950)

- Multiple buffer overflows in the (1) XvQueryAdaptors and (2) XvQueryEncodings functions in libXrender before 0.9.10 allow remote X servers to trigger out-of-bounds write operations via vectors involving length fields.(CVE-2016-7949)

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.
