MySQL Community Server 5.1 < 5.1.46 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Low

Synopsis

The remote database server is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of MySQL Community Server 5.1 earlier than 5.1.46 are potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- A local user may be able to issue a 'DROP TABLE' command for one MyISAM table and remove the data and index files of a different MyISAM table. (Bug #40980)

- The application does not correct check privileges in calls to 'UNINSTALL PLUGIN', which could be abused by an unprivileged user to uninstall plugins loaded dynamically. (BUG #51770)

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server 5.1.46 or later.
