Amazon Linux 2 : mariadb (ALASMARIADB10.5-2023-002)

high Nessus Plugin ID 181941


The remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.


The version of mariadb installed on the remote host is prior to 10.5.10-2. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2MARIADB10.5-2023-002 advisory.

- MariaDB v10.4 to v10.7 was discovered to contain an use-after-poison in prepare_inplace_add_virtual at /storage/innobase/handler/ (CVE-2022-32081)

- MariaDB v10.5 to v10.7 was discovered to contain an assertion failure at table->get_ref_count() == 0 in (CVE-2022-32082)

- MariaDB v10.2 to v10.7 was discovered to contain a segmentation fault via the component sub_select.

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


Run 'yum update mariadb' to update your system.
