medium Nessus Plugin ID 72373
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 affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MariaDB 5.5 running on the remote host is a version prior to 5.5.32. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Errors exist related to the following subcomponents :
Audit Log, Data Manipulation Language, Full Text Search, GIS, Server Optimizer, Server Parser and Server Replication. (CVE-2013-1861, CVE-2013-3783, CVE-2013-3793, CVE-2013-3802, CVE-2013-3804, CVE-2013-3809, CVE-2013-3812)

- Errors exist in the files 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/', 'sql/' and 'storage/innobase/mem/mem0mem.c' that could allow denial of service attacks.

- Errors exist in the functions or methods 'CONVERT_TZ Item_func_min_max::get_date', 'my_decimal2decimal', 'setup_ref_array' and 'st_select_lex::nest_last_join' that could allow denial of service attacks.

- A buffer overflow error exists in the file 'sql/' in the function 'QUICK_GROUP_MIN_MAX_SELECT::next_min' that could allow denial of service attacks and possibly arbitrary code execution

- An unspecified issue exists in the file 'dbug/dbug.c' in the macro 'str_to_buf' that has an unspecified impact.
