MySQL < 4.1.13a / 5.0.10 Zlib Library Buffer Overflow
High Nessus Plugin ID 17827
SynopsisArbitrary code could be executed on the remote database server.
DescriptionThe version of MySQL installed on the remote host is older than 4.1.13a or 5.0.10 and as such, may have been linked with zlib 1.2.2.
On operating systems where the MySQL binaries are statically linked (mainly Windows and HP-UX), a remote attacker could crash the server or execute arbitrary code by triggering a buffer overflow in zlib.
SolutionUpgrade to MySQL version 4.1.13a / 5.0.10 or later.
