Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2015-4826)

An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to impact integrity. (CVE-2015-4879)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server Security Encryption subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information.
(CVE-2015-7744)
