The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The remote Oracle Linux 8 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2023-5259 advisory.

- In MariaDB before 10.9.2, compress_write in extra/mariabackup/ does not release data_mutex upon a stream write failure, which allows local users to trigger a deadlock. (CVE-2022-38791)

- MariaDB v10.2 to v10.7 was discovered to contain a segmentation fault via the component sub_select.

- MariaDB v10.7 was discovered to contain an use-after-poison in in __interceptor_memset at /libsanitizer/sanitizer_common/ (CVE-2022-32091)

- MariaDB Server before 10.3.34 thru 10.9.3 is vulnerable to Denial of Service. It is possible for function spider_db_mbase::print_warnings to dereference a null pointer. (CVE-2022-47015)
