The correct answer is A.

OBJ-1.6: You should contact the vendor to determine if a patch is available for installation. Since this is a vendor-supported appliance installed under a service contract, the vendor is responsible for the appliance’s management and security. You should not attempt to gain access to the underlying operating system to patch the vulnerability yourself, as this could void your warranty and void your service contract. Based on the information provided, there is no reason to believe that this is a false positive, either. You should not simply wait 30 days and rerun the scan, as this is a non-action. Instead, you should contact the vendor to fix this vulnerability. Then, you could rerun the scan to validate they have completed the mitigations and remediations.
