New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it is different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 5.9

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

According to the versions of the pcre packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple flaws were found in the way PCRE handled malformed regular expressions. An attacker able to make an application using PCRE process a specially crafted regular expression could use these flaws to cause the application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-8385, CVE-2016-3191, CVE-2015-2328, CVE-2015-3217, CVE-2015-5073, CVE-2015-8388, CVE-2015-8391, CVE-2015-8386)

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 pcre packages.
