medium Nessus Plugin ID 58590
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Louis Rilling discovered a flaw in Linux kernel's clone command when CLONE_IO is specified. An unprivileged local user could exploit this to cause a denial of service.


Update the affected linux-image-2.6.32-423-dove package.
