The remote SUSE Linux SLES15 / SLES_SAP15 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2022:1571-1 advisory.

  • A flaw was found in KVM. When updating a guestโ€™s page table entry, vm_pgoff was improperly used as the offset to get the pageโ€™s pfn. As vaddr and vm_pgoff are controllable by user-mode processes, this flaw allows unprivileged local users on the host to write outside the userspace region and potentially corrupt the kernel, resulting in a denial of service condition. (CVE-2022-1158)

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