MySQL 5.7.x < 5.7.14 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Plugin ID 93004
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.7.x prior to 5.7.14. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the InnoDB subcomponent that allow an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-3495, CVE-2016-5627, CVE-2016-5630)

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

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5628)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Memcached subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-5631)

- Multiple unspecified flaws exist in the Performance Schema subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-5633, CVE-2016-8290)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the RBR subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5634)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Security: Audit subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-5635)

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

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Replication subcomponent that allows a authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
(CVE-2016-8287)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the InnoDB subcomponent that allows a local attacker to impact integrity and availability. (CVE-2016-8289)

- 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.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in InnoDB when handling ALTER TABLE operations on tables that have an indexed virtual column. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause an assertion failure, resulting in a server crash.

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 5.7.14 or later.
