The remote Oracle Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2019-1959 advisory.

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.0.7. A NULL pointer dereference can occur when megasas_create_frame_pool() fails in megasas_alloc_cmds() in drivers/scsi/megaraid/megaraid_sas_base.c.
    This causes a Denial of Service, related to a use-after-free. (CVE-2019-11810)

  • Insufficient input validation in Kernel Mode Driver in Intel® i915 Graphics for Linux before version 5.0 may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable escalation of privilege via local access.
    (CVE-2019-11085)

  • An issue was discovered in the Linux kernel before 5.0.4. There is a use-after-free upon attempted read access to /proc/ioports after the ipmi_si module is removed, related to drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_si_intf.c, drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_si_mem_io.c, and drivers/char/ipmi/ipmi_si_port_io.c. (CVE-2019-11811)

  • In the Linux kernel before 4.20.2, kernel/sched/fair.c mishandles leaf cfs_rq’s, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (infinite loop in update_blocked_averages) or possibly have unspecified other impact by inducing a high load. (CVE-2018-20784)

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