MySQL 5.6.x < 5.6.40 Multiple Vulnerabilities (RPM Check) (April 2018 CPU)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 109169
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
