High Nessus Plugin ID 99815

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the openssh packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- It was discovered that the OpenSSH sshd daemon fetched PAM environment settings before running the login program. In configurations with UseLogin=yes and the pam_env PAM module configured to read user environment settings, a local user could use this flaw to execute arbitrary code as root. (CVE-2015-8325)

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.
