New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.

Description

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

- Multiple integer overflows in the (1) curl_escape, (2) curl_easy_escape, (3) curl_unescape, and (4) curl_easy_unescape functions in libcurl before 7.50.3 allow attackers to have unspecified impact via a string of length 0xffffffff, which triggers a heap-based buffer overflow.(CVE-2016-7167)
