MySQL 6.0 < 6.0.10 XPath Expression DoS

Medium Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801132


The remote host is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack


The version of MySQL 6.0 installed on the remote host is earlier than 6.0.10 and thus affected by a denial of service vulnerability. Specifically, a user can cause an assertion failure leading to a server crash by calling 'ExtractValue()' or 'UpdateXML()' using an XPath expression employing a scalar expression as a 'FilterExpr'.


Upgrade to MySQL Community Server version 6.0.10 or later.
