MySQL Community Server 5.0 < 5.0.45 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 25759
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 susceptible to multiple attacks.


The 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.


Upgrade to MySQL Community Server version 5.0.45 or later.
