Oracle MySQL 5.6.x < 5.6.32 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9613
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 vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.6.x prior to 5.6.32 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.
- A flaw exists in InnoDB that is triggered when selecting full-text index information schema tables for a deleted table. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- 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.
- 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.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the InnoDB subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated remote attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Replication subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL 5.6.32 or later.
