Synopsis

The remote host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The version of Oracle MySQL installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.43. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified flaw in the Optimizer subcomponent. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition.

Solution

Apply the appropriate patch according to the July 2015 Oracle Critical Patch Update advisory.
