high Nessus Plugin ID 143257


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- A flaw was found in librepo in versions before 1.12.1.
A directory traversal vulnerability was found where it failed to sanitize paths in remote repository metadata.
An attacker controlling a remote repository may be able to copy files outside of the destination directory on the targeted system via path traversal. This flaw could potentially result in system compromise via the overwriting of critical system files. The highest threat from this flaw is to users that make use of untrusted third-party repositories.(CVE-2020-14352)

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 librepo package.
