The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 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.

  • apache-commons-compress: excessive memory allocation when reading a specially crafted ZIP archive (CVE-2021-36090)

  • When reading a specially crafted 7Z archive, the construction of the list of codecs that decompress an entry can result in an infinite loop. This could be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress’ sevenz package. (CVE-2021-35515)

  • When reading a specially crafted 7Z archive, Compress can be made to allocate large amounts of memory that finally leads to an out of memory error even for very small inputs. This could be used to mount a denial of service attack against services that use Compress’ sevenz package. (CVE-2021-35516)

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