Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:097 (MySQL).



SQL injection vulnerability in MySQL 4.1.x before 4.1.20 and 5.0.x

before 5.0.22 permits context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary

SQL commands via crafted multibyte encodings in character sets such as

SJIS, BIG5, and GBK, which are not properly handled when the

mysql_real_escape function is used to escape the input.



MySQL 4.0.18 in Corporate 3.0 and MNF 2.0 is not affected by this issue.



Packages have been patched to correct this issue.
