New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 3.6
SynopsisThe remote database server is susceptible to multiple attacks.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL Community Server installed on the remote host is reportedly affected by a denial of service vulnerability that can lead to a server crash with a specially crafted password packet.
It is also affected by a privilege escalation vulnerability because 'CREATE TABLE LIKE' does not require any privileges on the source table, which allows an attacker to create arbitrary tables using the affected application.
SolutionUpgrade to MySQL Community Server version 5.0.45 or later.
