MDKSA-2004:034: 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-2004:034 (MySQL).


Shaun Colley discovered that two scripts distributed with MySQL, the
'mysqld_multi' and 'mysqlbug' scripts, did not create temporary files in a
secure fashion. A possible hacker could create symbolic links in /tmp that could permit
for overwriting of files with the rights of the user running the scripts.
The scripts have been patched in the updated packages to prevent this behaviour.
