AlmaLinux 8 : kernel-rt (5834) (ALSA-2022:5834)

high Nessus Plugin ID 163889


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


The remote AlmaLinux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALSA-2022:5834 advisory.

- net/netfilter/nf_tables_api.c in the Linux kernel through 5.18.1 allows a local user (able to create user/net namespaces) to escalate privileges to root because an incorrect NFT_STATEFUL_EXPR check leads to a use-after-free. (CVE-2022-32250)

- kernel: Small table perturb size in the TCP source port generation algorithm can lead to information leak (CVE-2022-1012)

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


Update the affected packages.
