AlmaLinux 8 : rust-toolset:rhel8 (ALSA-2021:4590)

Description

The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALSA-2021:4590 advisory. - An issue was discovered in the Bidirectional Algorithm in the Unicode Specification through 14.0. It permits the visual reordering of characters via control sequences, which can be used to craft source code that renders different logic than the logical ordering of tokens ingested by compilers and interpreters. Adversaries can leverage this to encode source code for compilers accepting Unicode such that targeted vulnerabilities are introduced invisibly to human reviewers. (CVE-2021-42574) Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
