The remote Ubuntu 18.04 ESM / 20.04 ESM / 22.04 ESM host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the USN-6434-1 advisory.

  • OpenPMIx PMIx before 4.2.6 and 5.0.x before 5.0.1 allows attackers to obtain ownership of arbitrary files via a race condition during execution of library code with UID 0. (CVE-2023-41915)

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