Vulnerability Assessment Details

[GLSA-200503-19] MySQL: Multiple vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
MySQL: Multiple vulnerabilities

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200503-19
(MySQL: Multiple vulnerabilities)


MySQL fails to properly validate input for authenticated users with
INSERT and DELETE rights (CVE-2005-0709 and CVE-2005-0710).
Furthermore MySQL uses predictable filenames when creating temporary
files with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE (CVE-2005-0711).

Impact

A possible hacker with INSERT and DELETE rights could exploit this to
manipulate the mysql table or accessing libc calls, potentially leading
to the execution of arbitrary code with the permissions of the user
running MySQL. A possible hacker with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE rights could
exploit this to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.
