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: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.46. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including three of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the October 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory:
- Vulnerability in the MySQL Server product of Oracle MySQL (component: Server: Optimizer). Easily exploitable vulnerability allows low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Server.
Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of MySQL Server. (CVE-2019-2794)
- Vulnerabilities in the MySQL Server product of Oracle MySQL (component: Server: Security: Encryption). Easily exploitable vulnerabilities allow unauthenticated attackers with network access via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Server. Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities can result in unauthorized read access to a subset of MySQL Server accessible data. (CVE-2019-2923, CVE-2019-2924)
Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to MySQL version 5.6.46 or later.
