Description

The version of Oracle MySQL installed on the remote host is 5.5.x prior to 5.5.50. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the Parser subcomponent that allows a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (CVE-2016-3477)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the Types subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3521)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the DML subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-3615)

  • An unspecified flaw exists in the RBR subcomponent that allows an authenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2016-5440)

  • Multiple overflow conditions exist due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit these issues to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.

  • A NULL pointer dereference flaw exists in a parser structure that is triggered during the validation of stored procedure names. An authenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to crash the database, resulting in a denial of service condition.
