medium Nessus Plugin ID 83885
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.

Synopsis

The remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.

Description

As discussed in an upstream announcement, Ruby's OpenSSL extension suffers a vulnerability through overly permissive matching of hostnames, which can lead to similar bugs such as CVE-2014-1492 .

Solution

Run 'yum update ruby22' to update your system.
