Vulnerability Assessment Details

USN274-1 : mysql-dfsg vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
mysql-dfsg vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- libmysqlclient-dev
- libmysqlclient12
- libmysqlclient12-dev
- mysql-client
- mysql-common
- mysql-server


Description :

A logging bypass was discovered in the MySQL query parser. A local
attacker could exploit this by inserting NUL characters into query
strings (even into comments), which would cause the query to be logged
incompletely.

This only affects you if you enabled the 'log' parameter in the MySQL
configuration.

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- libmysqlclient-dev-4.0.20-2ubuntu1.7 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- libmysqlclient12-4.0.24-10ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- libmysqlclient12-dev-4.0.24-10ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- mysql-client-4.0.24-10ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- mysql-common-4.0.24-10ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
- mysql-server-4.0.24-10ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 5.10)
