MariaDB 5.5 < 5.5.47 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 87727

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB running on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.47. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server : Options subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2016-0505)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Client subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-0546)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server : DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2016-0596)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Server :
Optimizer subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service.
(CVE-2016-0597, CVE-2016-0598, CVE-2016-0616)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server : InnoDB subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2016-0600)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server : Security :
Encryption subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity. (CVE-2016-0606, CVE-2016-0609)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Server : UDF subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2016-0608)
- A security bypass vulnerability exists due to an incorrect implementation of the --ssl-verify-server-cert option. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this to replace the server SSL certificate, resulting in a bypass of the client-side hostname verification.
(MDEV-9212)
