Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mysql (MDVSA-2008:149)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

Sergei Golubchik found that MySQL did not properly validate optional
data or index directory paths given in a CREATE TABLE statement; as
well it would not, under certain conditions, prevent two databases
from using the same paths for data or index files. This could allow an
authenticated user with appropriate privilege to create tables in one
database to read and manipulate data in tables later created in other
databases, regardless of GRANT privileges (CVE-2008-2079).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 4.6
(CVSS2#AV:N/AC:H/Au:S/C:P/I:P/A:P)
CVSS Temporal Score : 4.0
(CVSS2#E:ND/RL:OF/RC:C)
Public Exploit Available : false
