EulerOS Virtualization 3.0.2.6 : PyYAML (EulerOS-SA-2021-2902)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 156538

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS Virtualization host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- A vulnerability was discovered in the PyYAML library in versions before 5.4, where it is susceptible to arbitrary code execution when it processes untrusted YAML files through the full_load method or with the FullLoader loader. Applications that use the library to process untrusted input may be vulnerable to this flaw. This flaw allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the system by abusing the python/object/new constructor. This flaw is due to an incomplete fix for CVE-2020-1747. (CVE-2020-14343)

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 PyYAML packages.
