The remote Ubuntu 16.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the USN-3330-1 advisory.

  • An issue was discovered in the size of the stack guard page on Linux, specifically a 4k stack guard page is not sufficiently large and can be jumped over (the stack guard page is bypassed), this affects Linux Kernel versions 4.11.5 and earlier (the stackguard page was introduced in 2010). (CVE-2017-1000364)

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