MySQL Community Server 5.1 < 5.1.46 Multiple Vulnerabilities

low Nessus Plugin ID 46328
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.

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL Community Server 5.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.46 and thus potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A local user may be able to issue a 'DROP TABLE' command for one MyISAM table and remove the data and index files of a different MyISAM table. (Bug #40980)

- The application does not correct check privileges in calls to 'UNINSTALL PLUGIN', which could be abused by an unprivileged user to uninstall plugins loaded dynamically. (Bug #51770)

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server 5.1.46 or later.
