New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is prior to 5.5.39. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the mariadb-5539-release-notes advisory. These vulnerabilites relate to errors in the following components:

- CLIENT:MYSQLADMIN
- CLIENT:MYSQLDUMP
- SERVER:CHARACTER SETS
- SERVER:DDL
- SERVER:DML
- SERVER:MEMORY STORAGE ENGINE
- SERVER:MyISAM
- SERVER:PRIVILEGES AUTHENTICATION PLUGIN API
- SERVER:REPLICATION ROW FORMAT BINARY LOG DML
- SERVER:SSL:yaSSL

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

Solution

Upgrade to MariaDB version 5.5.39 or later.
