The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 host has one or more packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities that have been acknowledged by the vendor but will not be patched.

  • patch: the following of symlinks in inp.c and util.c is mishandled in cases other than input files (CVE-2019-13636)

  • A double free exists in the another_hunk function in pch.c in GNU patch through 2.7.6. (CVE-2018-6952)

  • GNU patch through 2.7.6 contains a free(p_line[p_end]) Double Free vulnerability in the function another_hunk in pch.c that can cause a denial of service via a crafted patch file. NOTE: this issue exists because of an incomplete fix for CVE-2018-6952. (CVE-2019-20633)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied on the package manager’s report that the package is installed.
