Description

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

- A stack overflow vulnerability was found in
_nss_dns_getnetbyname_r.On systems with nsswitch configured to include 'networks: dns' with a privileged or network-facing service that would attempt to resolve user-provided network names, an attacker could provide an excessively long network name, resulting in stack corruption and code execution.(CVE-2016-3075)
