The remote CentOS Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the CESA-2021:4595 advisory.

  • Developer environment: Unicode’s bidirectional (BiDi) override characters can cause trojan source attacks (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.
