Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mysql (MDVSA-2008:017)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

MySQL 5.0.x did not update the DEFINER value of a view when the view
is altered, which allows remote authenticated users to gain privileges
via a sequence of statements including a CREATE SQL SECURITY DEFINER
VIEW statement and an ALTER VIEW statement (CVE-2007-6303).

The federated engine in MySQL 5.0.x, when performing a certain SHOW
TABLE STATUS query, did not properly handle a response with a small
number of columns, which could allow a remote MySQL server to cause a
denial of service (federated handler crash and daemon crash) via a
response that lacks the minimum required number of columns
(CVE-2007-6304).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:N/I:N/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.3
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : true
