The remote Ubuntu 16.04 ESM / 18.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-5164-1 advisory.

  • hso_free_net_device in drivers/net/usb/hso.c in the Linux kernel through 5.13.4 calls unregister_netdev without checking for the NETREG_REGISTERED state, leading to a use-after-free and a double free.
    (CVE-2021-37159)

  • A memory leak flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the ccp_run_aes_gcm_cmd() function in drivers/crypto/ccp/ccp-ops.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption).
    This vulnerability is similar with the older CVE-2019-18808. (CVE-2021-3744)

  • A memory leak flaw was found in the Linux kernel’s ccp_run_aes_gcm_cmd() function that allows an attacker to cause a denial of service. The vulnerability is similar to the older CVE-2019-18808. The highest threat from this vulnerability is to system availability. (CVE-2021-3764)

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