Description

The version of Oracle MySQL installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.45. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • An unspecified denial of service vulnerability exists in the InnoDB subcomponent which can be exploited by an authenticated, remote attacker. (CVE-2015-4816)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the Client Programs subcomponent. A local attacker can exploit this to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2015-4819)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the DLM subcomponent. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to impact confidentiality, integrity, and availability. (CVE-2015-4879)
