New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionThe following packages have been upgraded to a newer upstream version:
Security Fix(es) :
- It was discovered that the MariaDB logging functionality allowed writing to MariaDB configuration files. An administrative database user, or a database user with FILE privileges, could possibly use this flaw to run arbitrary commands with root privileges on the system running the database server. (CVE-2016-6662)
- A race condition was found in the way MariaDB performed MyISAM engine table repair. A database user with shell access to the server running mysqld could use this flaw to change permissions of arbitrary files writable by the mysql system user. (CVE-2016-6663)
(CVE-2016-3492, CVE-2016-5612, CVE-2016-5616, CVE-2016-5624, CVE-2016-5626, CVE-2016-5629, CVE-2016-8283)
