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.

SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux AMI host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThis update fixes several vulnerabilities in the MySQL database server. (CVE-2014-0386 , CVE-2014-0393 , CVE-2014-0401 , CVE-2014-0402 , CVE-2014-0412 , CVE-2014-0437 , CVE-2013-5908)
A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the MySQL command line client tool (mysql) processed excessively long version strings. If a user connected to a malicious MySQL server via the mysql client, the server could use this flaw to crash the mysql client or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the mysql client.
SolutionRun 'yum update mysql51' to update your system.
