Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.40. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as noted in the April 2018 Critical Patch Update advisory. Please consult the CVRF details for the applicable CVEs for additional information.

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 5.6.40 or later.
