Oracle MySQL 5.5.x < 5.5.51 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9609
SynopsisThe remote database server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.5.x prior to 5.5.51 and is affected by multiple issues :
- A flaw exists in the 'NAME_CONST()' function that is triggered during the handling of certain arguments. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 142918)
- A flaw exists in a library used by MySQL. Specifically, the Henry Spencer regex Library (rxspencer) contains an overflow condition that is triggered as certain input is not properly validated. This may allow a context-dependent attacker to cause a buffer overflow, resulting in an unspecified impact that may include a denial of service in a process linked against the library or potentially allow the execution of arbitrary code. (OSVDB 143022)
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the DML subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 145980)
SolutionUpgrade to MySQL 5.5.51 or later.
