Vulnerability Assessment Details

MDKSA-2003:094: 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-2003:094 (MySQL).


A buffer overflow was discovered in MySQL that could be executed by any user
with 'ALTER TABLE' rights on the 'mysql' database. If successfully
exploited, the attacker could execute arbitrary code with the rights of the
user running the mysqld process (mysqld). The 'mysql' database is used by MySQL
for internal record keeping and by default only the 'root' user, or MySQL
administrative account, has permission to alter its tables.
This vulnerability was corrected in MySQL 4.0.15 and all previous versions are
vulnerable. These packages have been patched to correct the problem.
