SUSE SLES12 Security Update : perl-DBD-mysql (SUSE-SU-2018:1450-1) (BACKRONYM)
High Nessus Plugin ID 110188
SynopsisThe remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThis update for perl-DBD-mysql fixes the following issues :
- CVE-2017-10789: The DBD::mysql module when with mysql_ssl=1 setting enabled, means that SSL is optional (even though this setting's documentation has a \'your communication with the server will be encrypted\' statement), which could lead man-in-the-middle attackers to spoof servers via a cleartext-downgrade attack, a related issue to CVE-2015-3152. (bsc#1047059)
- CVE-2017-10788: The DBD::mysql module through 4.043 for Perl allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (use-after-free and application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact by triggering (1) certain error responses from a MySQL server or (2) a loss of a network connection to a MySQL server. The use-after-free defect was introduced by relying on incorrect Oracle mysql_stmt_close documentation and code examples. (bsc#1047095)
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
