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 5.5.45. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified denial of service vulnerability exists in the InnoDB subcomponent which can be exploited by an authenticated, remote attacker. (CVE-2015-4816)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Client Programs subcomponent. A local attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-4819)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DLM subcomponent.
An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability.
(CVE-2015-4879)
