Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.32 Optimizer DoS (January 2016 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 88379

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 5.5.32. It is, therefore, affected by an unspecified flaw in the Optimizer subcomponent. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition.
