MySQL 8.0.x < 8.0.19 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Jan 2020 CPU)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 132958

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 8.0.19. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, 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. This 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).

- Vulnerability in the MySQL Client product of Oracle MySQL (component: C API). Supported versions that are affected are 5.6.46 and prior, 5.7.28 and prior and 8.0.18 and prior. Difficult to exploit vulnerability allows unauthenticated attacker with network access via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Client. Successful attacks of this vulnerability can result in unauthorized ability to cause a hang or frequently repeatable crash (complete DOS) of MySQL Client. (CVE-2020-2573)

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 8.0.19 or later.
