high Nessus Plugin ID 87210

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB running on the remote host is prior to 5.5.46.
It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist related to the Partition subcomponent that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2015-4802, CVE-2015-4792)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Query Cache subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-4807)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to the DDL subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-4815)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Types subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to gain access to sensitive information.
(CVE-2015-4826)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Security:Privileges subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to affect the integrity of the system. No other details are available.
(CVE-2015-4830)

- An unspecified flaw exists related to the SP subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-4836)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist related to the DML subcomponent that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-4858, CVE-2015-4913)
