MariaDB 5.5 < 5.5.48 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 87728

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 5.5.48. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2016-0640)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the MyISAM subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to disclose sensitive information or cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0641)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DDL subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0644)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0646)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the PS subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0649)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Replication subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-0650)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the decimal2string() function due to improper handling of decimal precision greater than 40. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the database.

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade to MariaDB version 5.5.48 or later.
