The remote host is missing one or more security updates.


The version of Oracle MySQL installed on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.27. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Types subcomponent.
An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain access to sensitive information. (CVE-2015-4826)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security:Privileges subcomponent. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to impact integrity. (CVE-2015-4830)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security:Encryption subcomponent. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to gain access to sensitive information.

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Options subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-3471)

Additionally, unspecified denial of service vulnerabilities exist in the following MySQL subcomponents :

- DDL (CVE-2015-4815)
