EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : kernel (EulerOS-SA-2016-1028)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99791


The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


According 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.


Update the affected kernel package.
