medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8760
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote database server is missing a critical Oracle MySQL patch update.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.42 or 5.6.x prior to 5.6.23. It is, therefore, affected by errors in the following components :

- Server : DDL (CVE-2015-2573)

- Server : InnoDB : DML (CVE-2015-0433)

- Server : Security : Encryption (CVE-2015-0441)

- Server : Security : Privileges (CVE-2015-2568)


Upgrade to MySQL 5.5.42, 5.6.23, or later.
