High Nessus Plugin ID 99849

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

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

- An out-of-bounds read flaw was found in the way Expat processed certain input. A remote attacker could send specially crafted XML that, when parsed by an application using the Expat library, would cause that application to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the permission of the user running the application.(CVE-2016-0718)

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.
