The remote Oracle Linux 7 / 8 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ELSA-2022-9029 advisory.

  • A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the legacy_parse_param function in the Filesystem Context functionality of the Linux kernel verified the supplied parameters length. An unprivileged (in case of unprivileged user namespaces enabled, otherwise needs namespaced CAP_SYS_ADMIN privilege) local user able to open a filesystem that does not support the Filesystem Context API (and thus fallbacks to legacy handling) could use this flaw to escalate their privileges on the system. (CVE-2022-0185)

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