MySQL 5.1 < 5.1.18 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 25242
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host reportedly is affected by several issues :

- Evaluation of an 'IN()' predicate with a decimal-valued argument causes a service crash.

- A user can rename a table even though he does not have DROP privileges.

- If a stored routine is declared as 'SQL SECURITY INVOKER', a user may be able to gain privileges by invoking that routine.

- A user with only ALTER privileges on a partitioned table can discover information about the table that should require SELECT privileges.


Upgrade to MySQL version 5.1.18 or later.
