medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9994
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 affected by multiple Denial of Service (DoS) attack vectors.

Description

MariaDB is a community-developed fork of the MySQL relational database. The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is 10.1.x earlier than 10.1.22, and is therefore affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the 'JOIN_CACHE::create_remaining_fields()' function in 'sql_join_cache.cc' that is triggered when handling data caching. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'find_field_in_tables()' function in 'sql_base.cc' that is triggered during the handling of stored procedures in 'EXISTS' queries. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'JOIN::drop_unused_derived_keys()' function in 'sql_select.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted 'SELECT' statement. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.

Solution

Upgrade to version 10.1.22 or later.
