Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.52 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote database server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.52 and is affected by multiple issues :

- A flaw exists related to the way 'REPAIR TABLE' uses temporary files. This may allow an authenticated attacker to gain elevated privileges. (OSVDB 143808) - An overflow condition exists that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated when handling long integer values in 'MEDIUMINT' columns. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in a denial of service or potentially allowing the execution of arbitrary code. (OSVDB 143822) - A flaw exists that is triggered during the handling of prepared statements that use a parameter in the select list of a derived table that was part of a join. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the server. (OSVDB 143823) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Error Handling subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145975) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the MyISAM subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145976) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the DML subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145979) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the GIS subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145981) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Optimizer subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145983) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Federated subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145986) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Types subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145999)
