Process image does not match prelink verification image.
The following daemons are associated with broken links to executables : - 12345 udp: (/usr/sbin/avahi-daemon) - Process image does not match prelink verification image. : Process image md5sum : abcdef01234567890abcdef012345678 Prelink verification image md5sum : 01234567890abcdef01234567890abcd Vulnerability Description: "By examining the '/proc' filesystem on the remote Linux host, Nessus has identified at least one currently-running daemon for which the link to the corresponding executable is broken. This can occur when the executable associated with a daemon is replaced on disk but the daemon itself has not been restarted. And if the changes are security-related, the system may remain vulnerable to attack until the daemon is restarted. Alternatively, it could result from an attacker removing files in an effort to hide malicious activity.
