MySQL < 3.23.55 Double Free() Overflow

High

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.

Description

The remote host is running a version of MySQL which is older than version 3.23.55. If you have not patched this version, then any attacker with a valid username may crash this service remotely by exploiting a double free bug. Further exploitation to gain a shell on the host may also be possible.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL 3.23.55 or higher.
