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: 4.4

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered and corrected in mysql :

- During evaluation of arguments to extreme-value functions (such as LEAST() and GREATEST()), type errors did not propagate properly, causing the server to crash (CVE-2010-3833).

- The server could crash after materializing a derived table that required a temporary table for grouping (CVE-2010-3834).

- A user-variable assignment expression that is evaluated in a logical expression context can be precalculated in a temporary table for GROUP BY. However, when the expression value is used after creation of the temporary table, it was re-evaluated, not read from the table and a server crash resulted (CVE-2010-3835).

- Pre-evaluation of LIKE predicates during view preparation could cause a server crash (CVE-2010-3836).

- GROUP_CONCAT() and WITH ROLLUP together could cause a server crash (CVE-2010-3837).

- Queries could cause a server crash if the GREATEST() or LEAST() function had a mixed list of numeric and LONGBLOB arguments, and the result of such a function was processed using an intermediate temporary table (CVE-2010-3838).

- Queries with nested joins could cause an infinite loop in the server when used from stored procedures and prepared statements (CVE-2010-3839).

- The PolyFromWKB() function could crash the server when improper WKB data was passed to the function (CVE-2010-3840).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution
