Description

The system is missing one or more SuSE security patches. MySQL contains a buffer overflow condition which could be exploitedby a user who has permission to execute "ALTER TABLE"commands onthe tables in the "mysql" database. If successfully exploited, thisvulnerability could allow the attacker to execute arbitrary code withthe privileges of the mysqld process (by default, user "mysql").

Solution(s)

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
