The remote Oracle Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2022-5937 advisory.

  • Incomplete cleanup of multi-core shared buffers for some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access. (CVE-2022-21123)

  • Incomplete cleanup of microarchitectural fill buffers on some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access. (CVE-2022-21125)

  • Incomplete cleanup in specific special register write operations for some Intel® Processors may allow an authenticated user to potentially enable information disclosure via local access. (CVE-2022-21166)

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