Oracle MySQL 6.x < 6.3.7 DoS

Medium

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of MySQL 6.x installed on the remote host is earlier than 6.3.7 and is affected by a flaw that is triggered during the execution of 'alter stored procedures' by a user lacking 'SELECT' privileges. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL version 6.3.7 or later.
