Slackware 10.0 / 10.1 / 10.2 / 9.1 / current : mysql (SSA:2006-155-01)
High Nessus Plugin ID 21639
SynopsisThe remote Slackware host is missing a security update.
DescriptionNew mysql packages are available for Slackware 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and -current to fix security issues. The MySQL packages shipped with Slackware 9.1, 10.0, and 10.1 may possibly leak sensitive information found in uninitialized memory to authenticated users. This is fixed in the new packages, and was already patched in Slackware 10.2 and
-current. Since the vulnerabilities require a valid login and/or access to the database server, the risk is moderate. Slackware does not provide network access to a MySQL database by default.
SolutionUpdate the affected mysql package.
