MDKSA-2006:149: 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-2006:149 (MySQL).

MySQL 4.1 before 4.1.21 and 5.0 before 5.0.24 permits a local user to
access a table through a previously created MERGE table, even after the
user's rights are revoked for the original table, which might
violate intended security policy (CVE-2006-4031).
The update permits the local admin to override MERGE using the
'--skip-merge' option when running mysqld. This can be defined under
MYSQLD_OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/mysqld. If '--skip-merge' is not used,
the old behaviour of MERGE tables is still used.
MySQL 4.1 before 4.1.21, 5.0 before 5.0.25, and 5.1 before 5.1.12,
when run on case-sensitive filesystems, permits remote authenticated
users to create or access a database when the database name differs
only in case from a database for which they have permissions
(CVE-2006-4226).
Packages have been patched to correct these issues.
