MySQL 8.0.x < 8.0.17 Multiple Vulnerabilities (July 2019 CPU)

high Nessus Plugin ID 126784

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 8.0.x prior to 8.0.17. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including three of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the July 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory:

- An unspecified vulnerability in the 'Shell: Admin / InnoDB Cluster' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to takeover an affected MySQL Server. A successful attack requires user interaction.
(CVE-2019-2822)

- As unspecified vulnerability in the 'Server: Replication' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to cause the server to hang or to, via a frequently repeatable crash, cause a complete denial of service.
Additionally, a successful attacker could perform unauthorized modifications to some MySQL Server accessible data. (CVE-2019-2800)

- As unspecified vulnerability in the 'Server: Charsets' subcomponent could allow an unauthenticated attacker to cause the server to hang or to, via a frequently repeatable crash, cause a complete denial of service.
(CVE-2019-2795)

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 8.0.17 or later.
