New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
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)
This update was imported from the SUSE:SLE-12:Update update project.
SolutionUpdate the affected perl-DBD-mysql packages.
