MDKSA-2006:084: 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-2006:084 (MySQL).



The check_connection function in sql_parse.cc in MySQL 4.0.x up to

4.0.26, 4.1.x up to 4.1.18, and 5.0.x up to 5.0.20 permits remote

attackers to read portions of memory via a username without a trailing

null byte, which causes a buffer over-read. (CVE-2006-1516)



sql_parse.cc in MySQL 4.0.x up to 4.0.26, 4.1.x up to 4.1.18, and

5.0.x up to 5.0.20 permits remote attackers to obtain sensitive

information via a COM_TABLE_DUMP request with an incorrect packet

length, which includes portions of memory in an error message.

(CVE-2006-1517)



Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
