New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 8.9
SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionExploitable memory corruption due to UFO to non-UFO path switch (CVE-2017-1000112)
heap out-of-bounds in AF_PACKET sockets (CVE-2017-1000111)
The mq_notify function in the Linux kernel does not set the sock pointer to NULL upon entry into the retry logic. During a user-space close of a Netlink socket, it allows attackers to possibly cause a situation where a value may be used after being freed (use-after-free) which may lead to memory corruption or other unspecified other impact.
SolutionRun 'yum update kernel' to update your system.
