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.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2020:3222 advisory.

- kernel: Indirect branch speculation can be enabled after it was force-disabled by the PR_SPEC_FORCE_DISABLE prctl command. (CVE-2020-10768)

- kernel: buffer overflow in mwifiex_cmd_append_vsie_tlv function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/scan.c (CVE-2020-12653)

- kernel: heap-based buffer overflow in mwifiex_ret_wmm_get_status function in drivers/net/wireless/marvell/mwifiex/wmm.c (CVE-2020-12654)

- Kernel: vfio: access to disabled MMIO space of some devices may lead to DoS scenario (CVE-2020-12888)

- kernel: lockdown: bypass through ACPI write via acpi_configfs (CVE-2020-15780)

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