The remote Oracle Linux 5 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ELSA-2012-14451 advisory.

  • The ext4_fill_flex_info function in fs/ext4/super.c in the Linux kernel before 3.2.2, on the x86 platform and unspecified other platforms, allows user-assisted remote attackers to trigger inconsistent filesystem- groups data and possibly cause a denial of service via a malformed ext4 filesystem containing a super block with a large FLEX_BG group size (aka s_log_groups_per_flex value). NOTE: this vulnerability exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2009-4307. (CVE-2012-2100)

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