QualysGuard reports Linux kernel vulnerabilities for kernel versions older than the running kernel version.



Older kernel versions are still installed on the host. The host may still be vulnerable due to some leftover associations with the older RPMs. Use the command rpm -qa | grep kernel to find out what kernel versions are currently installed. Uninstall any previous kernel versions.
