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

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

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Low / CVSS Base Score : 2.1

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks
