The remote Rocky Linux host is missing a security update.


The remote Rocky Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the RLSA-2022:9058 advisory.

- SnakeYaml's Constructor() class does not restrict types which can be instantiated during deserialization.
Deserializing yaml content provided by an attacker can lead to remote code execution. We recommend using SnakeYaml's SafeConsturctor when parsing untrusted content to restrict deserialization. (CVE-2022-1471)
