OpenVAS finding vulnerabilities that are not vulnerable

Unread post by bundaburg1 »

I have a lot of systems running kernel 2.6.39-400.297.5.el6uek - upon scanning within openvas, it flags this kernel as having many vulnerabilities.

For example:

Oracle Linux Local Security Checks ELSA-2015-3019
Vulnerability Detection Result
Package kernel-uek version kernel-uek-2.6.39-400.297.5.el6uek is installed which is known to be vulnerable.

Upon trying to remediate this, yum reports back:

[root@xx yum.repos.d]# yum update --advisory ELSA-2015-3019
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin, security
Setting up Update Process
Resolving Dependencies
Limiting packages to security relevant ones
Advisory "ELSA-2015-3019" not found applicable for this system

Any thoughts?
