CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/Au:N/C:P/I:P/A:P

Affected Versions:
mysql55-mysql on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
MySQL is a multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. It consists of the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) and many client programs and libraries. This update fixes several vulnerabilities in the MySQL database server. Information about these flaws can be found on the Oracle Critical Patch Update Advisory page, listed in the References section. (CVE-2013-5807, CVE-2013-5891, CVE-2014-0386, CVE-2014-0393, CVE-2014-0401, CVE-2014-0402, CVE-2014-0412, CVE-2014-0420, CVE-2014-0437, CVE-2013-3839, CVE-2013-5908) A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way the MySQL command line client tool (mysql) processed excessively long version strings. If a user connected to a malicious MySQL server via the mysql client, the server could use this flaw to crash the mysql client or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running the mysql client. (CVE-2014-0001) The CVE-2014-0001 issue was discovered by Garth Mollett of the Red Hat Security Response Team. These updated Linux Distribution Packages upgrade MySQL to version 5.5.36. Refer to the MySQL Release Notes listed in the References section for a complete list of changes. All MySQL users should upgrade to these updated Linux Distribution Packages, which correct these issues. After installing this update, the MySQL server daemon (mysqld) will be restarted automatically.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
