Description

The remote CentOS Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the CESA-2021:3327 advisory.

  • kernel: powerpc: RTAS calls can be used to compromise kernel integrity (CVE-2020-27777)

  • kernel: out-of-bounds write in xt_compat_target_from_user() in net/netfilter/x_tables.c (CVE-2021-22555)

  • kernel: Local privilege escalation due to incorrect BPF JIT branch displacement computation (CVE-2021-29154)

  • kernel: lack a full memory barrier upon the assignment of a new table value in net/netfilter/x_tables.c and include/linux/netfilter/x_tables.h may lead to DoS (CVE-2021-29650)

  • kernel: race condition for removal of the HCI controller (CVE-2021-32399)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
