Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the versions of the util-linux packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- ** DISPUTED ** An integer overflow in util-linux through 2.37.1 can potentially cause a buffer overflow if an attacker were able to use system resources in a way that leads to a large number in the /proc/sysvipc/sem file. NOTE: this is unexploitable in GNU C Library environments, and possibly in all realistic environments. (CVE-2021-37600)

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.
