Amazon Linux 2 : bluez (ALAS-2022-1881)

high Nessus Plugin ID 168444


The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.


The version of bluez installed on the remote host is prior to 5.44-7. It is, therefore, affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ALAS2-2022-1881 advisory.

- BlueZ before 5.59 allows physically proximate attackers to obtain sensitive information because profiles/audio/avrcp.c does not validate params_len. (CVE-2022-39176)

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


Run 'yum update bluez' to update your system.
