The remote Oracle Linux 6 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ELSA-2018-4269 advisory.

  • Memory leak in the sas_smp_get_phy_events function in drivers/scsi/libsas/sas_expander.c in the Linux kernel through 4.15.7 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) via many read accesses to files in the /sys/class/sas_phy directory, as demonstrated by the /sys/class/sas_phy/phy-1:0:12/invalid_dword_count file. (CVE-2018-7757)

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