Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : MySQL (MDKSA-2005:060)

This script is Copyright (C) 2005-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

A number of vulnerabilities were discovered by Stefano Di Paola in the
MySQL server :

If an authenticated user had INSERT privileges on the 'mysql'
database, the CREATE FUNCTION command allowed that user to use libc
functions to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running the database server (mysql) (CVE-2005-0709).

If an authenticated user had INSERT privileges on the 'mysql'
database, it was possible to load a library located in an arbitrary
directory by using INSERT INTO mysql.func instead of CREATE FUNCTION.
This also would allow the user to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the database server (CVE-2005-0710).

Finally, temporary files belonging to tables created with CREATE
TEMPORARY TABLE were handled in an insecure manner, allowing any local
user to overwrite arbitrary files with the privileges of the database
server (CVE-2005-0711).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.5
