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: 5.9


The remote database server may be affected by a denial of service vulnerability.


The version of MySQL 5.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.71. It is, therefore, potentially affected by multiple denial of service vulnerabilities in the 'Server Optimizer' component.

Note: Oracle has provided a workaround to address the issue for CVE-2012-2750.


Upgrade to MySQL version 5.1.71 or later.
