EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : git (EulerOS-SA-2016-1009)
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 99772
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.
DescriptionAccording to the versions of the git packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- An integer truncation flaw and an integer overflow flaw, both leading to a heap-based buffer overflow, were found in the way Git processed certain path information. A remote attacker could create a specially crafted Git repository that would cause a Git client or server to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected git packages.
