Oracle MySQL < 3.23.55 Double Free() Overflow

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 1908


The remote host is vulnerable to a buffer overflow.


The remote host is running a version of MySQL which is older than version 3.23.55. If you have not patched this version, then any attacker with a valid username may crash this service remotely by exploiting a double free bug.
Further exploitation to gain a shell on the host may also be possible.


Upgrade to MySQL 3.23.55 or higher.
