The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 9 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the RHSA-2024:2199 advisory.

The Process Management Interface (PMI) provides process management functions for MPI implementations. PMI     Exascale (PMIx) provides an extended version of the PMI standard specifically designed to support clusters     up to and including exascale sizes.

Security Fix(es):

* pmix: race condition allows attackers to obtain ownership of arbitrary files (CVE-2023-41915)

For more details about the security issue(s), including the impact, a CVSS score, acknowledgments, and     other related information, refer to the CVE page(s) listed in the References section.

Additional Changes:

For detailed information on changes in this release, see the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9.4 Release Notes     linked from the References section.

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Red Hat Enterprise Linux security advisory.

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