Synopsis

The remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities

Description

The version of tested product installed on the remote host is prior to tested version. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities as referenced in the April 2020 CPU advisory:

- A vulnerability in the MySQL Connectors product of Oracle MySQL (component: Connector/J). Supported versions that are affected are 8.0.14 and prior and 5.1.48 and prior. This is a difficult to exploit vulnerability that allows an unauthenticated attacker, remote attacker via multiple protocols to compromise MySQL Connectors. Successful attacks require human interaction from a person other than the attacker and while the vulnerability is in MySQL Connectors, attacks may significantly impact additional products. Successful attacks involving this vulnerability can result in unauthorized update, insert or delete access to some of MySQL Connectors accessible data as well as unauthorized read access to a subset of MySQL Connectors accessible data. (CVE-2020-2875)
