The remote Ubuntu 20.04 LTS / 22.04 LTS host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-6725-2 advisory.

Chih-Yen Chang discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate     certain data structure fields when parsing lease contexts, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability.
A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive     information. (CVE-2023-1194)

Quentin Minster discovered that a race condition existed in the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel,     leading to a use-after-free vulnerability. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service     (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-32254)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel when     handling session connections, leading to a use- after-free vulnerability. A remote attacker could use this     to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2023-32258)

It was discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate buffer sizes     in certain operations, leading to an integer underflow and out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A remote     attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive     information. (CVE-2023-38427)

Chih-Yen Chang discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate SMB     request protocol IDs, leading to a out-of- bounds read vulnerability. A remote attacker could possibly use     this to cause a denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2023-38430)

Chih-Yen Chang discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate     packet header sizes in certain situations, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A remote     attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive     information. (CVE-2023-38431)

It was discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly handle session setup     requests, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. A remote attacker could use this to expose     sensitive information. (CVE-2023-3867)

Pratyush Yadav discovered that the Xen network backend implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly     handle zero length data request, leading to a null pointer dereference vulnerability. An attacker in a     guest VM could possibly use this to cause a denial of service (host domain crash). (CVE-2023-46838)

It was discovered that the IPv6 implementation of the Linux kernel did not properly manage route cache     memory usage. A remote attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (memory exhaustion).
(CVE-2023-52340)

It was discovered that the device mapper driver in the Linux kernel did not properly validate target size     during certain memory allocations. A local attacker could use this to cause a denial of service (system     crash). (CVE-2023-52429, CVE-2024-23851)

Yang Chaoming discovered that the KSMBD implementation in the Linux kernel did not properly validate     request buffer sizes, leading to an out-of-bounds read vulnerability. An attacker could use this to cause     a denial of service (system crash) or possibly expose sensitive information. (CVE-2024-22705)

Chenyuan Yang discovered that the btrfs file system in the Linux kernel did not properly handle read     operations on newly created subvolumes in certain conditions. A local attacker could use this to cause a     denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2024-23850)

It was discovered that a race condition existed in the Bluetooth subsystem in the Linux kernel, leading to     a null pointer dereference vulnerability. A privileged local attacker could use this to possibly cause a     denial of service (system crash). (CVE-2024-24860)

Several security issues were discovered in the Linux kernel. An attacker could possibly use these to     compromise the system. This update corrects flaws in the following subsystems:

- Architecture specifics;

- Block layer;

- Cryptographic API;

- Android drivers;

- EDAC drivers;

- GPU drivers;

- Media drivers;

- Multifunction device drivers;

- MTD block device drivers;

- Network drivers;

- NVME drivers;

- TTY drivers;

- Userspace I/O drivers;

- EFI Variable file system;

- F2FS file system;

- GFS2 file system;

- SMB network file system;

- BPF subsystem;

- IPv6 Networking;

- Network Traffic Control;

- AppArmor security module; (CVE-2023-52463, CVE-2023-52445, CVE-2023-52462, CVE-2023-52609,     CVE-2023-52448, CVE-2023-52457, CVE-2023-52464, CVE-2023-52456, CVE-2023-52454, CVE-2023-52438,     CVE-2023-52480, CVE-2023-52443, CVE-2023-52442, CVE-2024-26631, CVE-2023-52439, CVE-2023-52612,     CVE-2024-26598, CVE-2024-26586, CVE-2024-26589, CVE-2023-52444, CVE-2023-52436, CVE-2024-26633,     CVE-2024-26597, CVE-2023-52458, CVE-2024-26591, CVE-2023-52449, CVE-2023-52467, CVE-2023-52441,     CVE-2023-52610, CVE-2023-52451, CVE-2023-52469, CVE-2023-52470)

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory.

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