EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : python (EulerOS-SA-2016-1090)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99847
SynopsisThe remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAccording to the version of the python packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :
- The DES and Triple DES ciphers, as used in the TLS, SSH, and IPSec protocols and other protocols and products, have a birthday bound of approximately four billion blocks, which makes it easier for remote attackers to obtain cleartext data via a birthday attack against a long-duration encrypted session, as demonstrated by an HTTPS session using Triple DES in CBC mode, aka a 'Sweet32' attack.(CVE-2016-2183)
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 python package.
