Medium Nessus Plugin ID 59812


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


A flaw was discovered in the Linux kernel's NFSv4 (Network file system) handling of ACLs (access control lists). A remote NFS server (attacker) could cause a denial of service (OOPS).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected packages.
