Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.49 / 5.6.x < 5.6.30 / 5.7.x < 5.7.12 Multiple Vulnerabilities

critical Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9482
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 affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.49, 5.6.x prior to 5.6.30, or 5.7.x prior to 5.7.12. It is therefore affected by vulnerabilities in the following components :

- Data Manipulation Language
- Encryption
- Full-Text Search
- Federated
- InnoDB
- Locking
- Log
- Optimizer
- Performance Schema
- Partition
- Pluggable Authentication
- Security Privileges


Upgrade to MySQL 5.7.12 later. If 5.7.x cannot be obtained, 5.6.30 and 5.5.49 have also been patched for these vulnerabilities.
