Ubuntu 4.10 / 5.04 / 5.10 : mysql-dfsg vulnerability (USN-274-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21300
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionA logging bypass was discovered in the MySQL query parser. A local attacker could exploit this by inserting NUL characters into query strings (even into comments), which would cause the query to be logged incompletely.
This only affects you if you enabled the 'log' parameter in the MySQL configuration.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
