Oracle MySQL 5.7.x < 5.7.5 DoS

Medium

Synopsis

The remote database server is vulnerable to a Denial of Service (DoS) attack vector.

Description

The version of MySQL installed on the remote host is version 5.7.x prior to 5.7.5 and is affected by a use-after-free error 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. (OSVDB 151210)

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL 5.7.5 or later.
