Oracle Linux 7 / 8 : Unbreakable Enterprise kernel-container (ELSA-2022-9710)

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 7 / 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2022-9710 advisory. - AMD: CVE-2022-23816 AMD CPU Branch Type Confusion (CVE-2022-23816) - Intel microprocessor generations 6 to 8 are affected by a new Spectre variant that is able to bypass their retpoline mitigation in the kernel to leak arbitrary data. An attacker with unprivileged user access can hijack return instructions to achieve arbitrary speculative code execution under certain microarchitecture-dependent conditions. (CVE-2022-29901) Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
