Synopsis

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

Description

The remote Fedora 37 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the FEDORA-2023-3661f028b8 advisory.

- Linux Kernel nftables Out-Of-Bounds Read/Write Vulnerability; nft_byteorder poorly handled vm register contents when CAP_NET_ADMIN is in any user or network namespace (CVE-2023-35001)
