Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA483] DSA-483-1 mysql

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-483-1 mysql

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Two vulnerabilities have been discovered in mysql, a common database
system. Two scripts contained in the package don't create temporary
files in a secure fashion. This could permit a local attacker to
overwrite files with the rights of the user invoking the MySQL
server, which is often the root user. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures identifies the following problems:
The script mysqlbug in MySQL permits local users to overwrite
arbitrary files via a symlink attack.
The script mysqld_multi in MySQL permits local users to overwrite
arbitrary files via a symlink attack.
For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in
version 3.23.49-8.6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems will be fixed in
version 4.0.18-6 of mysql-dfsg.
We recommend that you upgrade your mysql, mysql-dfsg and related
packages.
