Description

The version of MySQL Community Server 5.1 installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.52 and thus potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

  • An error exists in the handling of 'EXPLAIN' for a 'SELECT' statement from a derived table which can cause the server to crash. (54488)

  • An error exists in the handling of 'EXPLAIN EXTENDED' when used in some prepared statements, which can cause the server to crash. (54494)

  • The server does not check the type of values assigned to items of type 'GeometryCollection'. Such assignments can cause the server to crash. (55531)
