Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : MySQL (MDKSA-2006:097)

High Nessus Plugin ID 21669


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


SQL injection vulnerability in MySQL 4.1.x before 4.1.20 and 5.0.x before 5.0.22 allows context-dependent attackers to execute arbitrary SQL commands via crafted multibyte encodings in character sets such as SJIS, BIG5, and GBK, which are not properly handled when the mysql_real_escape function is used to escape the input.

MySQL 4.0.18 in Corporate 3.0 and MNF 2.0 is not affected by this issue.

Packages have been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected packages.
