high Nessus Plugin ID 154140

Language:

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Fedora 35 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2021-79cbbefebe advisory.

- prealloc_elems_and_freelist in kernel/bpf/stackmap.c in the Linux kernel before 5.14.12 allows unprivileged users to trigger an eBPF multiplication integer overflow with a resultant out-of-bounds write. (CVE-2021-41864)

- A memory leak flaw was found in the Linux kernel in the ccp_run_aes_gcm_cmd() function in drivers/crypto/ccp/ccp-ops.c, which allows attackers to cause a denial of service (memory consumption).
This vulnerability is similar with the older CVE-2019-18808. (CVE-2021-3744)

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

Solution

Update the affected kernel package.
