Description

According to the version of the binutils package installed, the EulerOS Virtualization installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

  • An issue was discovered in GNU Binutils 2.32. It is a heap-based buffer overflow in process_mips_specific in readelf.c via a malformed MIPS option section.(CVE-2019-9077)

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.
