MySQL 5.7.x < 5.7.27 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Jul 2019 CPU)

High Nessus Plugin ID 126783

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.

VPR Score: 6.7

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.7.x prior to 5.7.27. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including three of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the July 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory:

- A stack-based buffer overflow 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)

- A vulnerability in the 'Server: Parser' subcomponent. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability that allows a low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise the server. Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS). (CVE-2019-2805)

- A vulnerability in the 'Server: XML' subcomponent. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability that allows a low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise a server.Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS).
(CVE-2019-2740)

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 MySQL version 5.7.27 or later.
