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 5.5.62, 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-5-5-61.html https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/cpujul2018-425824 7.html https://dev.mysql.com/doc/relnotes/mysql/5.5/en/news-5-5-62.html https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/security-advisory/cpuoct2018-442829 6.html

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 5.5.62-0+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your mysql-5.5 packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
