Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mysql (MDVSA-2010:093)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 48182


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


A vulnerability was discovered in mysql which would permit mysql users without any kind of privileges to use the UNINSTALL PLUGIN function (CVE-2010-1621).

A problem was discovered in the mysqld init script which under certain circumstances could cause the service to exit too quickly, giving the [ OK ] status and before the mysql server was really started and bound to the mysql socket or IP address. This caused a problem for products like Pulse2.

The corrected packages solves these problems.


Update the affected packages.
