Why is Security scan showing CVE-2018-11409 on Splunk 8.1.3?


Hi all,

A security scan on our Splunk server has thrown up CVE-2018-11409. I've verified thatwe are affected -  I can access info on /en-US/splunkd/__raw/services/server/info/server-info?output_mode=json without being logged in. claims this was fixed for unauthenticated users in Splunk 6.6.0+, but we're running Splunk 8.1.3 (that version info is even printed in /en-US/splunkd/__raw/services/server/info/server-info?output_mode=json !).

Any idea why we could still be affected on Splunk 8.1.3?
