The remote Fedora 38 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the FEDORA-2023-123647648e advisory.

  • OpenSSH server (sshd) 9.1 introduced a double-free vulnerability during options.kex_algorithms handling.
    This is fixed in OpenSSH 9.2. The double free can be leveraged, by an unauthenticated remote attacker in the default configuration, to jump to any location in the sshd address space. One third-party report states remote code execution is theoretically possible. (CVE-2023-25136)

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