Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 / 5.10 : mysql-dfsg vulnerability (USN-274-1)

Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

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 :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P)
