high Nessus Plugin ID 109187

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Several issues have been discovered in the MySQL database server. The vulnerabilities are addressed by upgrading MySQL to the new upstream version 5.5.60, which includes additional changes. Please see the MySQL 5.5 Release Notes and Oracle's Critical Patch Update advisory for further details :

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-60.html http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/cpuapr2018-3678067 .html

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 5.5.60-0+deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-5.5 packages.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
