The version of kernel installed on the remote host is prior to 5.4.46-19.75. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2KERNEL-5.4-2022-012 advisory.

  • relay_open in kernel/relay.c in the Linux kernel through 5.4.1 allows local users to cause a denial of service (such as relay blockage) by triggering a NULL alloc_percpu result. (CVE-2019-19462)

  • Incomplete cleanup from specific special register read operations in some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access. (CVE-2020-0543)

  • A flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s implementation of Userspace core dumps. This flaw allows an attacker with a local account to crash a trivial program and exfiltrate private kernel data.
    (CVE-2020-10732)

  • A flaw was found in the Linux kernels SELinux LSM hook implementation before version 5.7, where it incorrectly assumed that an skb would only contain a single netlink message. The hook would incorrectly only validate the first netlink message in the skb and allow or deny the rest of the messages within the skb with the granted permission without further processing. (CVE-2020-10751)

  • A flaw was found in the Linux Kernel in versions after 4.5-rc1 in the way mremap handled DAX Huge Pages.
    This flaw allows a local attacker with access to a DAX enabled storage to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2020-10757)

  • DISPUTED An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.6. svm_cpu_uninit in arch/x86/kvm/svm.c has a memory leak, aka CID-d80b64ff297e. NOTE: third parties dispute this issue because it’s a one-time leak at the boot, the size is negligible, and it can’t be triggered at will.
    (CVE-2020-12768)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 5.6.11. sg_write lacks an sg_remove_request call in a certain failure case, aka CID-83c6f2390040. (CVE-2020-12770)

  • gadget_dev_desc_UDC_store in drivers/usb/gadget/configfs.c in the Linux kernel 3.16 through 5.6.13 relies on kstrdup without considering the possibility of an internal ‘\0’ value, which allows attackers to trigger an out-of-bounds read, aka CID-15753588bcd4. (CVE-2020-13143)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application’s self-reported version number.
