The remote SUSE Linux SLES12 / SLES_SAP12 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the SUSE-SU-2023:4505-1 advisory.

  • libxml2 through 2.11.5 has a use-after-free that can only occur after a certain memory allocation fails.
    This occurs in xmlUnlinkNode in tree.c. NOTE: the vendor’s position is I don’t think these issues are critical enough to warrant a CVE ID … because an attacker typically can’t control when memory allocations fail. (CVE-2023-45322)

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