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

Synopsis

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

Description

Sergei Golubchik found that MySQL did not properly validate optional data or index directory paths given in a CREATE TABLE statement; as well it would not, under certain conditions, prevent two databases from using the same paths for data or index files. This could allow an authenticated user with appropriate privilege to create tables in one database to read and manipulate data in tables later created in other databases, regardless of GRANT privileges (CVE-2008-2079).

The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
