Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:057: MySQL

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Check for the version of the MySQL package

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2003:057 (MySQL).


In MySQL 3.23.55 and earlier, MySQL would create world-writeable files and permit
mysql users to gain root rights by using the 'SELECT * INTO OUTFILE'
operator to overwrite a configuration file, which could cause mysql to run as
root upon restarting the daemon.
This has been fixed upstream in version 3.23.56, which is provided for Mandrake
Linux 9.0 and Corporate Server 2.1 users. The other updated packages have been
patched to correct this issue.
