EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.2.6 : libgcrypt (EulerOS-SA-2021-2888)

high Nessus Plugin ID 156537

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- Libgcrypt before 1.8.8 and 1.9.x before 1.9.3 mishandles ElGamal encryption because it lacks exponent blinding to address a side-channel attack against mpi_powm, and the window size is not chosen appropriately. This, for example, affects use of ElGamal in OpenPGP. (CVE-2021-33560)

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 libgcrypt packages.
