Description

The version of MySQL Enterprise Monitor installed on the remote host are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the July 2022 CPU advisory.
- Vulnerability in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor product of Oracle MySQL (component: Monitoring: General (highlight.js)). Supported versions that are affected are 8.0.30 and prior. A malicious HTML code block can be crafted that will result in prototype pollution of the base object's prototype during highlighting. The pollution should just be harmless data but this can cause problems for applications not expecting these properties to exist and can result in strange behavior or application crashes, i.e. a potential DOS vector. (CVE-2020-26237)
- Vulnerability in the MySQL Enterprise Monitor product of Oracle MySQL (component: Monitoring: General (Apache Struts)). Supported versions that are affected are 8.0.30 and prior. some tag attributes could perform a double evaluation if a developer applied forced OGNL evaluation by using the %{...} syntax. Using forced OGNL evaluation on untrusted user input can lead to a Remote Code Execution and security degradation. (CVE-2021-31805)

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