This plugin has been deprecated.

Description

The version of tested product installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS-2020-1466 advisory.

- libslirp 4.0.0, as used in QEMU 4.1.0, has a use-after-free in ip_reass in ip_input.c. (CVE-2019-15890)

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

This plugin has been deprecated due to Amazon pulling the previously published advisory.
