Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.49 Multiple Vulnerabilities (April 2016 CPU) (July 2016 CPU)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 90830

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 5.5.49. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Federated subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2016-0642)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows a local attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information. (CVE-2016-0643)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the FTS subcomponent that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0647)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the PS subcomponent that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0648)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security: Privileges subcomponent that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-0666)

- A man-in-the-middle spoofing vulnerability exists due to the server hostname not being verified to match a domain name in the Subject's Common Name (CN) or SubjectAltName field of the X.509 certificate. A man-in-the-middle attacker can exploit this, by spoofing the TLS/SSL server via a certificate that appears valid, to disclose sensitive information or manipulate transmitted data.
(CVE-2016-2047)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security: Encryption subcomponent that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to disclose potentially sensitive information.
(CVE-2016-3452)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the RBR subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5440)

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL version 5.5.49 or later.
