MariaDB 10.1.x < 10.1.18 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 95632

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MariaDB running on the remote host is 10.1.x prior to 10.1.18. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Optimizer subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3492)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the MyISAM subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-5616)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5624)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the GIS subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5626)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Federated subcomponent that allows an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5629)

- A security bypass vulnerability exists that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to bypass file access restrictions and create the /var/lib/mysql/my.cnf file with arbitrary contents without the FILE privilege requirement. (CVE-2016-6663)

- An unspecified flaw exists in the Types subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-8283)

- A flaw exists in the Item_field::fix_after_pullout() function within file sql/item.cc when handling a prepared statement with conversion to semi-join. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition.

- An assertion flaw exists in the mysql_admin_table() function within file sql/sql_admin.cc when handling the re-execution of certain ANALYZE TABLE prepared statements. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition.

Solution

Upgrade to MariaDB version 10.1.18 or later.
