Fail to read kernel version on remote/ target host

While scanning remote host for VA using OpenVAS, it fails to detect correct version of installed Kernel on an CentOS 7.9 machine due to which we see poor VA score for all the Linux nodes.

Currently we are running latest kernel for Kernel - 3.10.0-1160.81.1.el7.x86_64
whereas in scan OpenVAS read the same as Kernel - 3.10.0-1160.81.1.el7.x86_64

I would like your help to fix this issue.

Hi @dev.tiwari,

are you still seeing this? Also, I might be missing something but in your post the kernel versions look the same to me. Thanks!
