MDKSA-2004:119: 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-2004:119 (MySQL).



A number of problems have been discovered in the MySQL database server:

Jeroen van Wolffelaar discovered an insecure temporary file vulnerability in
the mysqlhotcopy script when using the scp method (CVE-2004-0457).

Oleksandr Byelkin discovered that the 'ALTER TABLE ... RENAME' would check the
CREATE/INSERT rights of the old table rather than the new one (CVE-2004-0835).

Lukasz Wojtow discovered a buffer overrun in the mysql_real_connect function
(CVE-2004-0836).

Dean Ellis discovered that multiple threads ALTERing the same (or different)
MERGE tables to change the UNION can cause the server to crash or stall
(CVE-2004-0837).

The updated MySQL packages have been patched to protect against these issues.
