FreeBSD : mysql -- command line client input validation vulnerability (4775c807-8f30-11dd-821f-001cc0377035)

Low Nessus Plugin ID 34390


The remote FreeBSD host is missing one or more security-related updates.


Thomas Henlich reports :

The mysql command-line client does not quote HTML special characters like < in its output. This allows an attacker who is able to write data into a table to hide or modify records in the output, and to inject potentially dangerous code, e. g. JavaScript to perform cross-site scripting or cross-site request forgery attacks.


Update the affected packages.
