The remote Fedora 37 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2023-8d0913f986 advisory.

  • GNU Binutils before 2.40 was discovered to contain an excessive memory consumption vulnerability via the function bfd_dwarf2_find_nearest_line_with_alt at dwarf2.c. The attacker could supply a crafted ELF file and cause a DNS attack. (CVE-2022-48064)

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