MySQL 8.0.x < 8.0.16 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Apr 2019 CPU) (Jul 2019 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 124160


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 8.0.x prior to 8.0.16. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including four of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the April 2019 and July 2019 Critical Patch Update advisories:

- An unspecified vulnerability in the 'Server: Packaging (cURL)' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to gain complete control of an affected instance of MySQL Server. (CVE-2019-3822)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the 'Server: Pluggable Auth' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to gain complete access to all MySQL Server accessible data. (CVE-2019-2632)

- Multiple denial of service vulnerabilities exist in the 'Server: Optimizer' subcomponent and could allow a low priviledged attacker to cause the server to hang or to, via a frequently repeatable crash, cause a complete denial of service. (CVE-2019-2693, CVE-2019-2694, CVE-2019-2695)

- An unspecified vulnerability in the 'Server: Compiling (OpenSSL)' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to gain complete access to all MySQL Server accessible data. (CVE-2019-1559)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.


Upgrade to MySQL version 8.0.16 or later.
