MySQL Community Server < 5.1.47 / 5.0.91 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 46702

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The version of MySQL Community Server installed on the remote host is earlier than 5.1.47 / 5.0.91 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- The server may continue reading packets indefinitely if it receives a packet larger than the maximum size of one packet, which could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to consume a high level of CPU and bandwidth. (Bug #50974)

- Using an overly long table name argument to the 'COM_FIELD_LIST' command, an authenticated user can overflow a buffer and execute arbitrary code on the affected host. (Bug #53237)

- Using a specially crafted table name argument to 'COM_FIELD_LIST', an authenticated user can bypass almost all forms of checks for privileges and table- level grants. (Bug #53371)

Solution

Upgrade to MySQL Community Server 5.1.47 / 5.0.91 or later.
