The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.


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

- It was found that cache files were insufficiently validated in fontconfig. A local attacker could create a specially crafted cache file to trigger arbitrary free() calls, which in turn could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2016-5384)
