Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:013 (MYSQL).


Aleksander Adamowski informed MandrakeSoft that the MySQL developers fixed a DoS
vulnerability in the recently released 3.23.55 version of MySQL. A double free()
pointer bug in the mysql_change_user() handling would permit a specially hacked
mysql client to crash the main mysqld server. This vulnerability can only be
exploited by first logging in with a valid user account.
