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 denial of service vulnerabilities.


The version of MySQL running on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.43 or version 5.6.x prior to 5.6.24. It is, therefore, potentially affected by unspecified flaws in the following MySQL subcomponents that allow a denial of service by an authenticated, remote attacker :

- Replication (CVE-2015-0498)
- Federated (CVE-2015-0499)
- Information Schema (CVE-2015-0500)
- Compiling (CVE-2015-0501)
- Partition (CVE-2015-0503)
- DDL (CVE-2015-0505)
- InnoDB (CVE-2015-0506, CVE-2015-0508)
- Memcached (CVE-2015-0507)
- SP (CVE-2015-0511)
- Security : Privileges (CVE-2015-2567)
- Optimizer (CVE-2015-2571)
