EulerOS 2.0 SP1 : ipa (EulerOS-SA-2017-1013)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 99859


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the ipa packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- It was discovered that the default IdM password policies that lock out accounts after a certain number of failed login attempts were also applied to host and service accounts. A remote unauthenticated user could use this flaw to cause a denial of service attack against kerberized services. (CVE-2016-7030)

- It was found that IdM's certprofile-mod command did not properly check the user's permissions while modifying certificate profiles. An authenticated, unprivileged attacker could use this flaw to modify profiles to issue certificates with arbitrary naming or key usage information and subsequently use such certificates for other attacks. (CVE-2016-9575)

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.


Update the affected ipa packages.
