MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.57 Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2017 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 101819

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.57. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Connector/C and C API components that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3635)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Client programs component that allows a local attacker to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
(CVE-2017-3636)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3641)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Charsets component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-3648)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Client mysqldump component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2017-3651)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the DDL component that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality and integrity. (CVE-2017-3652, CVE-2017-3653)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL version 5.5.57 or later.
