MariaDB Server 10.0.x < 10.0.29 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 9912

Synopsis

The remote database server is affected by multiple attack vectors.

Description

The version of MariaDB installed on the remote host is 10.0.x prior to 10.0.29, and is affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- A flaw exists in the 'check_duplicate_key()' function that is triggered during the handling of error messages. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database. Depending on the database's implementation, it varies if this vulnerability requires authenticated access (e.g. daily DBA duties) or may be exploited by a remote attacker (e.g. interfaced via a web application).
- A flaw exists in the 'JOIN::destroy()' function in 'sql/sql_select.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted query. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'date_add_interval()' function in 'sql/sql_time.cc' that is triggered during the handling of INTERVAL arguments. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in 'sql/item_subselect.cc' that is triggered during the handling of queries from the select/unit tree. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'Item::check_well_formed_result()' function in 'sql/item.cc' that is triggered during the handling of row validation. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'lex_one_token()' function in 'sql/sql_lex.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted query. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'merge_buffers()' function in 'sql/filesort.cc' that is triggered during the handling of 'sort_union' optimization. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'Item_cache::safe_charset_converter()' function in 'sql/item.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted subselect query item. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in 'scripts/mysqld_safe.sh' related to insecure use of certain shell utilities e.g. chown and rm when handling error log files. This may allow a local attacker via a symlink attack to gain 'root' privileges.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the DDL subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the DML subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the InnoDB subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the 'Server:Optimizer' subcomponent. This may allow an authenticated attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in 'scripts/mysqld_safe.sh' related to handling of the '--ledir' command line option used to specify the directory where mysqld is stored, as this value may be read from the configuration file. This may allow a local attacker to gain elevated privileges.
- A flaw exists in the 'packaging/rpm-oel/mysql.init' initialization script related to insecure use of the chown and chmod utilities. This may allow a local attacker to potentially gain 'root' privileges.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Logging subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to cause a denial of service. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- An unspecified flaw exists related to the Error Handling subcomponent. This may allow a local attacker to gain access to sensitive information. No further details have been provided by the vendor.
- A flaw exists in the 'handle_if_exists_options()' function in 'sql/sql_table.cc' that is triggered during the handling of a specially crafted 'ADD FOREIGN KEY' statements. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.
- A flaw exists in the 'handle_if_exists_options()' function in 'sql/sql_table.cc' that is triggered due to missing foreign keys in a second 'ALTER TABLE' statement. This may allow an authenticated attacker to crash the database.

Solution

Upgrade to version 10.0.29 or later.
