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: 7.3
SynopsisThe remote database server is affected by several issues.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL Community Server 5.0 installed on the remote host is before 5.0.66. Such versions are reportedly affected by the following issues :
- When using a FEDERATED table, a local server could be forced to crash if the remote server returns a result with fewer columns than expected (Bug #29801).
- ALTER VIEW retains the original DEFINER value, even when altered by another user, which could allow that user to gain the access rights of the view (Bug #29908).
- A local user can circumvent privileges through creation of MyISAM tables using the 'DATA DIRECTORY' and 'INDEX DIRECTORY' options to overwrite existing table files in the application's data directory (Bug #32167).
- RENAME TABLE against a table with DATA/INDEX DIRECTORY overwrites the file to which the symlink points (Bug #32111).
- It was possible to force an error message of excessive length, which could lead to a buffer overflow (Bug #32707).
- Three vulnerabilities in yaSSL versions 1.7.5 and earlier as used in MySQL could allow an unauthenticated remote attacker to crash the server or to execute arbitrary code provided yaSSL is enabled and the server allows TCP connections (Bug #33814).
- An empty bit-string literal (b'') used in a SQL statement could result in a server crash (Bug #35658).
