Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is prior to 10.3.17. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities as referenced in the mdb-10317-rn advisory:

- A vulnerability in the 'Server: Pluggable Auth' subcomponent. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability that allows a highly privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise the MariaDB Server. Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of the MariaDB Server.
(CVE-2019-2737)

- A vulnerability in the 'Server: Security: Privileges' subcomponent. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability that allows a highly privileged attacker, who is able to logon to the infrastructure where the MariaDB Server executes, to compromise the MariaDB Server. Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of MariaDB Server as well as unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of the data accessible to the MariaDB Server. (CVE-2019-2739)

- 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 MariaDB Server.Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of the MariaDB Server.
(CVE-2019-2740)

- A vulnerability in the InnoDB subcomponent of the MariaDB Server. This is an easily exploitable vulnerability that allows a highly privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise a MariaDB Server. Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of the MariaDB Server as well as unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of the data accessible to the MariaDB Server. (CVE-2019-2758)

- 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 MariaDB Server.
Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in the unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of the MariaDB Server. (CVE-2019-2805)

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