Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.40 / 5.6.x < 5.6.21 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8912
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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.40 or 5.6.x prior to 5.6.21. It is, therefore, affected by errors in the following components :

- C API SSL CERTIFICATE HANDLING
- CLIENT:SSL:yaSSL
- SERVER:DML
- SERVER:INNODB DML FOREIGN KEYS
- SERVER:OPTIMIZER
- SERVER:SSL:yaSSL

- A use-after-free error exists in the 'mysql_prune_stmt_list()' function in 'client.c' that may allow an authenticated attacker to dereference already freed memory and crash the database.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL 5.5.40 or 5.6.21 or later.
