The version of kernel installed on the remote host is prior to 4.14.285-147.501. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS-2022-1604 advisory.

  • A kernel information leak flaw was identified in the scsi_ioctl function in drivers/scsi/scsi_ioctl.c in the Linux kernel. This flaw allows a local attacker with a special user privilege (CAP_SYS_ADMIN or CAP_SYS_RAWIO) to create issues with confidentiality. (CVE-2022-0494)

  • net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c in the Linux kernel through 5.18.1 allows a local user (able to create user/net namespaces) to escalate privileges to root because an incorrect NFT_STATEFUL_EXPR check leads to a use-after-free. (CVE-2022-32250)

  • The Linux kernel before 5.17.9 allows TCP servers to identify clients by observing what source ports are used. (CVE-2022-32296)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel through 5.18.3 on powerpc 32-bit platforms. There is a buffer overflow in ptrace PEEKUSER and POKEUSER (aka PEEKUSR and POKEUSR) when accessing floating point registers. (CVE-2022-32981)

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