Description

The version of MySQL running on the remote host is 5.6.x prior to 5.6.43. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities, including three of the top vulnerabilities below, as noted in the January 2019 Critical Patch Update advisory:

  • An unspecified vulnerability in MySQL in the 'Server: Replication' subcomponent could allow an low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to gain unauthorized access critical data or complete access to all MySQL server data. (CVE-2019-2534)

  • An unspecified vulnerability in MySQL in the 'Server: Optimizer' subcomponent could allow an low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to perform a denial of service attack. (CVE-2019-2529)

  • An unspecified vulnerability in MySQL in the 'Server: PS' subcomponent could allow an low privileged attacker with network access via multiple protocols to perform a denial of service attack. (CVE-2019-2482)

Note that Nessus has not tested for these issues but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
