critical Nessus Plugin ID 167839

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is prior to 5.5.38. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the mariadb-5-5-38-release-notes advisory.

- Unspecified vulnerability in the MySQL Server component in Oracle MySQL 5.5.37 and earlier allows remote authenticated users to affect availability via vectors related to ENARC. (CVE-2014-2494)

- Unspecified vulnerability in the MySQL Server component in Oracle MySQL 5.5.37 and earlier, and 5.6.17 and earlier, allows remote authenticated users to affect integrity and availability via vectors related to SRCHAR. (CVE-2014-4260)

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 MariaDB version 5.5.38 or later.
