Insight

Insight

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in MySQL, a popular database. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2004-0957 Sergei Golubchik discovered a problem in the access handling for similar named databases. If a user is granted privileges to a database with a name containing an underscore (_), the user also gains privileges to other databases with similar names. CVE-2005-0709 Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges to execute arbitrary code by using CREATE FUNCTION to access libc calls. CVE-2005-0710 Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL allows remote authenticated users with INSERT and DELETE privileges to bypass library path restrictions and execute arbitrary libraries by using INSERT INTO to modify the mysql.func table. CVE-2005-0711 Stefano Di Paola discovered that MySQL uses predictable file names when creating temporary tables, which allows local users with CREATE TEMPORARY TABLE privileges to overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack. For the stable distribution (woody) these problems have been fixed in version 3.23.49-8.11. For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version 4.0.24-5 of mysql-dfsg and in version 4.1.10a-6 of mysql-dfsg-4.1. We recommend that you upgrade your mysql packages.
