New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSecurity Fix(es) :
- It was found that the MariaDB client library did not properly check host names against server identities noted in the X.509 certificates when establishing secure connections using TLS/SSL. A man-in-the-middle attacker could possibly use this flaw to impersonate a server to a client. (CVE-2016-2047)

Bug Fix(es) :
- When more than one INSERT operation was executed concurrently on a non- empty InnoDB table with an AUTO_INCREMENT column defined as a primary key immediately after starting MariaDB, a race condition could occur. As a consequence, one of the concurrent INSERT operations failed with a 'Duplicate key' error message. A patch has been applied to prevent the race condition. Now, each row inserted as a result of the concurrent INSERT operations receives a unique primary key, and the operations no longer fail in this scenario.
