Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Redhat Enterprise Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the RHSA-2020:4444 advisory.

- glibc: stack corruption from crafted input in cosl, sinl, sincosl, and tanl functions (CVE-2020-10029)

- glibc: array overflow in backtrace functions for powerpc (CVE-2020-1751)

- glibc: use-after-free in glob() function when expanding ~user (CVE-2020-1752)

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

Solution
