MariaDB 5.5.x < 5.5.45 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 93846

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.45. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the InnoDB component that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2015-4816)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Client Programs component that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-4819)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability. No other details are available. (CVE-2015-4879)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the base_list_iterator::next_fast() function within file sql/sql_parse.cc when handling multi-table updates. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the server.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in the Item_func_group_concat::fix_fields() function within file sql/item_sum.cc when handling arguments on the second execution of PS. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the server.

- A denial of service vulnerability exists in select_lex->non_agg_fields when using ONLY_FULL_GROUP_BY in a stored procedure or trigger that is repeatedly executed. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the server.

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 MariaDB version 5.5.45 or later.
