The remote Fedora 37 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2023-e7ed15ab9e advisory.

  • In Mosquitto before 2.0.16, excessive memory is allocated based on malicious initial packets that are not CONNECT packets. (CVE-2023-0809)

  • In Mosquitto before 2.0.16, a memory leak occurs when clients send v5 CONNECT packets with a will message that contains invalid property types. (CVE-2023-3592)

  • The broker in Eclipse Mosquitto 1.3.2 through 2.x before 2.0.16 has a memory leak that can be abused remotely when a client sends many QoS 2 messages with duplicate message IDs, and fails to respond to PUBREC commands. This occurs because of mishandling of EAGAIN from the libc send function.
    (CVE-2023-28366)

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