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's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
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 :
- A flaw was discovered in the way the Linux kernel's TTY subsystem handled the tty shutdown phase. A local, unprivileged user could use this flaw to cause denial of service on the system by holding a reference to the ldisc lock during tty shutdown, causing a deadlock.(CVE-2015-4170)
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 kernel package.
