Description

The remote SUSE Linux SLES15 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SUSE- SU-2021:2372-1 advisory.

  • In __hidinput_change_resolution_multipliers of hid-input.c, there is a possible out of bounds write due to a heap buffer overflow. This could lead to local escalation of privilege with no additional execution privileges needed. User interaction is not needed for exploitation.Product: AndroidVersions: Android kernelAndroid ID: A-173843328References: Upstream kernel (CVE-2021-0512)

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