MySQL 5.6.x < 5.6.32 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 93002

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.32. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5612)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the InnoDB subcomponent that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-5627, CVE-2016-5630)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Replication subcomponent that allows a local attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-8284)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the NAME_CONST() function when handling certain unspecified arguments. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause the server to exit.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in InnoDB when selecting full-text index information schema tables for a deleted table. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a segmentation fault.

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 MySQL version 5.6.32 or later.
