MariaDB 5.5.x < 5.5.62 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Plugin ID 122258
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 denial of service vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB running on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.62. It is, therefore, affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the crc32_big() function within file crc32.c due to an out-of bounds pointer flaw.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted document, to cause the application to stop responding. (CVE-2016-9843)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the MySQL component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Client programs). An authenticated, local attacker can exploit this issue, to cause MySQL Server to stop responding. (CVE-2018-3174)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the MySQL component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Server: Storage Engines). An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this issue, to cause MySQL Server to stop responding. (CVE-2018-3282)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the MySQL component of Oracle MySQL (subcomponent: Server: Connection Handling). An authenticated, adjacent attacker can exploit this, to cause MySQL Server to stop responding. (CVE-2019-2503)

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 MariaDB version 5.5.62 or later.
