MariaDB Client 5.5.x < 5.5.35 Buffer Overflow Vulnerability

Medium

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database. The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.5.35, and is therefore likely to be vulnerable to a remote buffer overflow condition in client/mysql.cc. A context-dependent attacker can leverage this to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade to version 5.5.35, or higher, to address these vulnerabilities.
