SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the nss-util packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way NSS parsed certain ASN.1 structures. An attacker could use this flaw to create a specially crafted certificate which, when parsed by NSS, could cause it to crash, or execute arbitrary code, using the permissions of the user running an application compiled against the NSS library.(CVE-2016-1950)
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.
