MariaDB Server 10.0.x < 10.0.29 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is 10.0.x prior to 10.0.29, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the 'check_duplicate_key()' function that is triggered during the handling of error messages. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. Depending on the database's implementation, it varies if this vulnerability requires authenticated access (e.g. daily DBA duties) or may be exploited by a remote attacker (e.g. interfaced via a web application). (OSVDB 149063) - A flaw exists in the 'JOIN::destroy()' function in 'sql/sql_select.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted query. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149065) - A flaw exists in the 'date_add_interval()' function in 'sql/sql_time.cc' that is triggered during the handling of INTERVAL arguments. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149067) - A flaw exists in 'sql/item_subselect.cc' that is triggered during the handling of queries from the select/unit tree. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149068) - A flaw exists in the 'Item::check_well_formed_result()' function in 'sql/item.cc' that is triggered during the handling of row validation. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149069) - A flaw exists in the 'lex_one_token()' function in 'sql/sql_lex.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted query. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149106) - A flaw exists in the 'merge_buffers()' function in 'sql/filesort.cc' that is triggered during the handling of 'sort_union' optimization. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149347) - A flaw exists in the 'Item_cache::safe_charset_converter()' function in 'sql/item.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted subselect query item. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 149351) - A flaw exists in 'scripts/mysqld_safe.sh' related to insecure use of certain shell utilities e.g. chown and rm when handling error log files. This may allow a local attacker via a symlink attack to gain 'root' privileges. (OSVDB 150449) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the DDL subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150450) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the DML subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150452) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the InnoDB subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150453) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the 'Server:Optimizer' subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150454) - A flaw exists in 'scripts/mysqld_safe.sh' related to handling of the '--ledir' command line option used to specify the directory where mysqld is stored, as this value may be read from the configuration file. This may allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges. (OSVDB 150456) - A flaw exists in the 'packaging/rpm-oel/mysql.init' initialization script related to insecure use of the chown and chmod utilities. This may allow a local attacker to potentially gain 'root' privileges. (OSVDB 150457) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Logging subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150463) - An unspecified flaw exists related to the Error Handling subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to gain access to sensitive information. No further details have been provided by the vendor. (OSVDB 150464) - A flaw exists in the 'handle_if_exists_options()' function in 'sql/sql_table.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted 'ADD FOREIGN KEY' statements. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 150871) - A flaw exists in the 'handle_if_exists_options()' function in 'sql/sql_table.cc' that is triggered due to missing foreign keys in a second 'ALTER TABLE' statement. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. (OSVDB 150872)

Solution

Upgrade to version 10.0.29 or later.
