-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT - -------------------------------------------------------------------------- PACKAGE : MySQL SUMMARY : Fixes for several mysql vulnerabilities DATE : 2005-04-04 13:52:00 ID : CLA-2005:946 RELEVANT RELEASES : 9, 10 - ------------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION MySQL[1] is a very popular SQL database. This announcement fixes several vulnerabilities discovered in MySQL: 1.CAN-2005-0709[2] MySQL allowed remote authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges on 'mysql' administrative database to execute arbitrary code by using CREATE FUNCTION to access libc calls. 2.CAN-2005-0710[3] MySQL allowed remote authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges on 'mysql' administrative database to bypass library path restrictions and execute arbitrary libraries by using INSERT INTO to modify the mysql.func table, which is processed by the udf_init function. 3.CAN-2005-0711[4] MySQL used predictable file names when creating temporary tables, which allowed local users with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE privileges to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack. SOLUTION We recommend that all MySQL users upgrade their packages as soon as possible. IMPORTANT: after the upgrade at Conectiva Linux 9, the mysql service must be restarted manually. In order to do that, run the following command as root: # /sbin/service mysql restart REFERENCES 1. 2. 3. 4.
