Description

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

  • In GNU Coreutils through 8.29, chown-core.c in chown and chgrp does not prevent replacement of a plain file with a symlink during use of the POSIX '-R -L' options, which allows local users to modify the ownership of arbitrary files by leveraging a race condition.(CVE-2017-18018)

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.
