Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : MySQL (MDKSA-2004:034)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Shaun Colley discovered that two scripts distributed with MySQL, the
'mysqld_multi' and 'mysqlbug' scripts, did not create temporary files
in a secure fashion. An attacker could create symbolic links in /tmp
that could allow for overwriting of files with the privileges of the
user running the scripts.

The scripts have been patched in the updated packages to prevent this
behaviour.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1
(CVSS2#AV:L/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:P/A:N)
