New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.3
SynopsisThe remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe database server MySQL was updated to fix a security problem :
CVE-2008-2079: MySQL allowed local users to bypass certain privilege checks by calling CREATE TABLE on a MyISAM table with modified (1) DATA DIRECTORY or (2) INDEX DIRECTORY arguments that are within the MySQL home data directory, which can point to tables that are created in the future.
CVE-2006-7232: sql_select.cc in MySQL 5.0.x before 5.0.32 and 5.1.x before 5.1.14 allows remote authenticated users to cause a denial of service (crash) via an EXPLAIN SELECT FROM on the INFORMATION_SCHEMA table, as originally demonstrated using ORDER BY.
SolutionUpdate the affected libmysqlclient-devel packages.
