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: 4.4
SynopsisThe remote database server is affected by a denial of service vulnerability.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.20. It is, therefore, affected by a use-after-free error in the mysql_prune_stmt_list() function in client.c, that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition.
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to MySQL version 5.6.20 or later.
