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: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.7.x prior to 5.7.29. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including three of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the January 2020 Critical Patch Update advisory:
- Vulnerability in the MySQL Server product of Oracle MySQL (component: Server: Compiling (cURL)). Supported versions that are affected are 5.7.28 and prior and 8.0.18 and prior. Easily exploitable vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Server. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in takeover of MySQL Server (CVE-2019-5482).
- Unspecified vulnerability in the optimizer component of Oracle MySQL Server. An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit this issue, to compromise the availability of the application (CVE-2020-2579).
- Unspecified vulnerabilities in the InnoDB component of Oracle MySQL Server. An authenticated, remote attacker could exploit these issues, to compromise the availability of the application (CVE-2020-2577, CVE-2020-2589). 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 5.7.29 or later.
