Description

The remote CentOS Linux 7 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the CESA-2022:0620 advisory.

- kernel: out of bounds write in hid-multitouch.c may lead to escalation of privilege (CVE-2020-0465)

- kernel: use after free in eventpoll.c may lead to escalation of privilege (CVE-2020-0466)
