SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the kernel packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- It was found that the fix for CVE-2015-1805 incorrectly kept buffer offset and buffer length in sync on a failed atomic read, potentially resulting in a pipe buffer state corruption. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to crash the system or leak kernel memory to user space. (CVE-2016-0774)
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.
