The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the RHSA-2023:1066 advisory.

  • A flaw was found in pesign. The pesign package provides a systemd service used to start the pesign daemon.
    This service unit runs a script to set ACLs for /etc/pki/pesign and /run/pesign directories to grant access privileges to users in the โ€˜pesignโ€™ group. However, the script doesnโ€™t check for symbolic links.
    This could allow an attacker to gain access to privileged files and directories via a path traversal attack. (CVE-2022-3560)

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