A daemon on the remote Linux host may need to be restarted.
By examining the '/proc' filesystem on the remote Linux host, Nessus
has identified at least one currently-running daemon for which the
link to the corresponding executable is broken.
This can occur when the executable associated with a daemon is
replaced on disk but the daemon itself has not been restarted. And if
the changes are security-related, the system may remain vulnerable to
attack until the daemon is restarted.
Alternatively, it could result from an attacker removing files in an
effort to hide malicious activity.
Inspect each reported daemon to determine why the link to the
executable is broken.
